Accountability court extends Shehbaz Sharif's transit remand till Nov 10

Islamabad (Staff Report): An accountability court in Islamabad on Tuesday extended the transit remand of former Punjab CM Shehbaz Sharif till November 10 to attend the National Assembly session.


The National Accountability Bureau (NAB), produced the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president before the accountability court.

The anti-graft watchdog requested the court to extend the transit remand of the former Punjab chief minister till November 12.

The court rejected NAB’s plea and granted extension till Nov 10 and directed to produce the accused before the court in Lahore on Nov 10.

Shehbaz was arrested on October 5 in the Ashiana Iqbal Housing Scheme case after he appeared before NAB in the Saaf Pani case.
