The notice was served to Shah who was then serving as the Minister for Labour and Manpower. The court has ordered him to submit a detailed reply in the next hearing.
The court also issued arrest warrants for the former secretary of the ministry Arif Azeem, and ordered that his name should be placed on the Exit Control List (ECL).
