According to the details, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) will be auctioning off his assets in-country, including Hajvery House, Dar’s Gulberg III H block property, three plots in Lahore’s Al-Falah Housing Society, six acres in Mauza Milot, a two-Kanal plot in Islamabad’s Parliamentarian Enclave, three Land Cruisers, two Mercedes Benz, and on Toyota Corolla.

It is pertinent to mention here that the request to stop the auctioning process was filed by the wife of the former finance minister Tabassum Ishaq Dar. She had earlier filed a request against the anti-corruption watchdog seizing Hajvery House, saying that it was her property.

She said that his husband Ishaq Dar had gifted it to here, however, an accountability court ruled that the house belonged to the former minister and therefore would also be seized and auctioned.
