Hamza Shehbaz to appear before LHC for bail today

Lahore (Staff Report): Opposition Leader in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz will appear before the Lahore High Court (LHC) today in connection to his bail petition.

A two-judge bench headed by Justice Malik Bashir Ahmed Khan will hear the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) leader bail petition.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) carried out two successive raids on Friday and Saturday at PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif's Model Town residence to arrest his son Hamza.

On Saturday, the LHC issued a short order granting interim bail to Hamza until April 8.

Strict security arrangements have been made around the LHC premises ahead of the hearing. According to police sources, 568 policemen have been deployed while two superintendent police, six deputy superintendents and 10 inspectors are also on-duty.
