ISLAMABAD - Capt (r) Muhammad Safdar, son-in-law of former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif has moved to an undisclosed location as National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) investigation team left for Mansehra to arrest him.
A team of the anti-graft watchdog had left for Mansehra to arrest Capt (r) Safdar Awan, day after he had been convicted in Avenfield reference along with his wife Maryam Nawaz and Nawaz Sharif.
The Bureau had contacted caretaker government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa seeking help in apprehension of Safdar.
Earlier today, the name of Sharif’s son-in-law was placed on the black list, which means he would be barred from leaving the country.
The step was taken after interior ministry recommended to put names of Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Captain (r) Safdar on Exit Control List (ECL).
