The bureau had launched an inquiry against Barjees for amassing assets beyond means and it issued call-up notices to him in 2019.

Barjees Tahir first approached the Lahore High Court for pre-arrest bail but the matter was sent to accountability court after an amendment in the National Accountability Ordinance wherein accountability courts were empowered to hear bail petitions.
