LAHORE: A sessions court on Tuesday extended pre-arrest bail of former director general of Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Bashir Memon in three inquiries.

The court restrained the FIA from arresting the accused ex-boss till March 15.

The FIA had initiated three inquiries against its former head on charges of money laundering, fraud and aiding a suspect wanted in a financial crime case.

Accused Bashir Memon personally appeared before the court on expiry of his bail and sought bail.

Memon counsel said that the FIA had not provided them with copies of complete documents of the inquiries. He insisted that he would not be able to file its reply without going through complete record against the petitioner.

He pleaded that all the inquiries initiated against him were baseless and politically motivated as there was no concrete evidence against the applicant.

The while extending bail to accused Bashir Memon directed the FIA to provide complete record to the defence.
