An accountability court on Saturday adjourned the hearing of a corruption reference against Dr Asim Hussain till November 26.

Dr Asim Hussain, a close aide of former president and PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari, is being probed by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on two corruption references of Rs462 billion through fraudulent allotment of land for expansion of his hospital and money laundering.

NAB’s witness Kamran Hashmi also appeared before the court but the hearing was adjourned over the witness’s failure to provide the court with original documents to defend his claim.

The court asked the witness to attend the next hearing with the relevant documents and ordered that NAB’s other witness Waqar also appear in the next hearing.
