Shehbaz Sharif presented before accountability court after remand ends

Lahore (Staff Report): The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Tuesday presented Opposition Leader in the National Assembly and Punjab’s former chief minister Shehbaz Sharif before an accountability court after his 10-day remand in the Ashiana Housing Scheme case ended.


The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president was transported to the court in a car with tinted windows.

Strict security arrangements are in place on the routes leading to the court's premises with blockades installed in several places.

Shehbaz's sons Hamza and Salman also reached the accountability court's premises.

On October 6, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had arrested the PML-N president in the Ashiana Iqbal Housing Scheme case and presented him before an accountability court. The anti-graft body had then been granted a 10-day physical remand of the former Punjab CM.
