The court also ordered Dar’s bail guarantor, Ahmad Qudoosi, to produce the suspect within three days, warning seizure of his Rs5m surety bond if he failed to do so.

The minister is accused of owning assets that are disproportionate to his declared sources of income.

He has skipped the last six hearings of the case owing to his treatment abroad.
