Footage on Pakistani media appears to show members of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) entering his home after the Islamabad High Court's decision.

NAB officials had requested the court for 14-day physical remand of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader.

Former Pakistani president and now a lawmaker in Parliament and leader of Pakistan People's party, Asif Ali Zardari, center, leaves the High Court building, in Islamabad, Pakistan, Monday, June 10, 2019. He was never convicted and denies any wrongdoing.

"This is done by NAB". A bench comprising Justice Amir Farooq and Justice Moshin Akhtar Kayani was conducting hearing over Asif Zardari and Faryal Talpur's plea for permanent bail in the fake accounts and mega-money laundering case. National Accountability Bureau (NAB) spokesman Nawazish Ali confirmed that Zardari has been arrested, without giving details.

Pakistani authorities previous year discovered several accounts, registered in the names of poor people, that had been flooded with cash, then suddenly emptied.

Nadler: DOJ, Dems strike deal over Mueller report evidence
The House Judiciary Committee plans to cover the first topic at a Monday hearing on "presidential obstruction and other crimes". "Given our conversations with the Department, I will hold the criminal contempt process in abeyance for now", said Nadler .

The arrest warrants were issued on Sunday by the NAB, the anti-corruption watchdog, which is probing them in the fake bank accounts case.

He was elected to office after the assassination of his wife, former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.

After his arrest on Monday, PPP supporters chanted "Long live Bhutto", in reference to one of South Asia's most famed political dynasties that has ruled Pakistan on several occasions over the past five decades.

The arrest comes as the economy continues to spiral and discontent simmers in Pakistan following repeated devaluations of the rupee, soaring inflation, and rising utility prices.

Zardari has previously been jailed for eight years after being found guilty of corruption. Khan's predecessor, Nawaz Sharif, was removed from office by the Supreme Court over corruption allegations.
