Corruption watchdog National Accountability Bureau had issued arrest warrant on him on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Interior Minister Ijaz Ahmed Shah said the Islamabad High Court has rejected bail plea of former President Asif Ali Zardari and the government has nothing to do with it.

The cases against Zardari are part of the investigations being conducted by NAB in pursuance of the Supreme Court's verdict in the money laundering of billions through fake accounts case.

Zardari, now a lawmaker in Parliament, and his sister Faryal Talpur, also a politician, are accused of having dozens of bogus bank accounts.

Former Pakistan president and Pakistan People's Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari has reportedly been arrested.

The two attended the court hearing but were not arrested at the scene. All the roads leading to Zardari House have been sealed off.
