Shahbaz Sharif complains of inhuman behaviour in NAB custody


LAHORE: PML-N President and Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif on Monday complained to an accountability court that National Accountability Bureau (NAB) officials were treating him in an "inhumane and humiliating" manner in jail.

While giving his statement to the accountability court, Shahbaz said he knew he was in custody on the court's orders, but it was his basic right that he receive medical treatment for his back pain, which he has been suffering from since 25 years.

The PML-N leader told the court that he used to ask for assistance in changing the position of his chair for prayers, but on October 1 and 2, he was refused assistance when he sought help from jail officials.

Shahbaz also alleged that instead of being served food on a table, as was usual till recently, his food is now being placed on the floor.

“This is being deliberately so that I have to bend to pick it up. It is happening at the behest of Imran Khan and Shehzad Akbar,” Shahbaz alleged.
