The top court asked the reason why NAB cases are delayed.
Justice Omar Ata Bandiyal remarked that instead of arresting the suspects, other methods could also be used by controlling their passports, bank accounts and assets.
The court said that it would be an injustice to detain suspects for a long period of time.
Permission to remain in detention for a long time can only be granted if the release of the accused is likely to affect the society or the trial, the court remarked.
