Lahore (Staff Report): An accountability court on Tuesday granted 14 days more physical remand to Opposition Leader in the National Assembly and Punjab’s former chief minister Shehbaz Sharif in the Ashiana Housing Scheme scam.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Shehbaz Sharif before an accountability court and requested for 15-day extension in the remand of Shahbaz Sharif.

However, the court granted 10 days remand.
