KARACHI: Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari burst out at anchor Mubasher Lucman on Tuesday, calling him a ‘lifafa journalist’ after the latter pointed out that Zardari smoked in the courtroom today.

Mubasher Lucman is known for being a harsh critic of the PPP. On frequent occasions, the anchor has taken jibes at the party’s leadership.

Recently, Lucman pointed out on Twitter how former president Zardari smoked in a courtroom today. Zardari was arrested the previous day by NAB in the fake accounts case.

Bakhtawar took a jab at Lucman, calling him a ‘lifafa journalist’. Lifafa journalist is a derogatory term used for journalists.

An accountability court has handed over former president Asif Ali Zardari toNational Accountability Bureau for a 10-day physical remand.

The anti-graft body had requested the court for Zardari’s 14-day physical remand after the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman was arrested a day earlier.

Zardari appeared before the accountability court judge Muhammad Arshad on Tuesday concerning his involvement in fake bank accounts case.

NAB prosecutor Muzaffar Abbasi informed the court that fake bank accounts were opened with the help of bank officials, Geo reported, citing Abbasi’s insistence for Zardari’s remand to pursue further investigation.
