An Islamabad accountability court had granted two-day transit remand of Sindh Assembly Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani on December 4.

He had been arrested in the premises of the Supreme Court on December 3 after a three-judge bench turned down his plea for pre-arrest bail and instead directed him to surrender before the national graft buster.

Durrani had appeared before the apex court after evading the anti-corruption watchdog for a month and a half. He had gone into hiding after the Sindh High Court (SHC) revoked his bail.
