Pakistan's top anti-corruption body, National Accountability Bureau, on Tuesday ordered a probe against the embattled former prime minister and others after reports of his involvement in the money laundering emerged in the media.

He regretted that the political parties failed to make the NAB such an institution which fulfilled the requirements of justice and play its due role against corruption.

He said that the NAB used an "unknown column in an unknown newspaper published four months ago" against him to begin an investigation.
