Junaid Safdar enquiry: Scotland Yard takes the final decision

LONDON – Scotland Yard has taken the final decision over the inquiry against Junaid Safdar, son of Maryam Nawaz.

Scotland Yard has decided not to pursue its inquiry against Maryam Nawaz Sharif’s son Junaid Safdar and Hussain Nawaz’s son Zakaria Sharif for being involved in a fight outside Avenfield flats, a few months ago.

The brawl, that erupted outside the upscale apartments of former ruling family, saw one man being taken to hospital for minor injuries, however, the police has decided not to take any action against the duo.

Junaid Safdar and Zakaria Sharif were detained on the evening of July 12, 2018 after Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz left from Harley Street Clinic for Heathrow airport to return to Pakistan after being awarded sentences in the Avenfiled reference.

Junaid and Zakaria were met by a group of protesters as they approached the back entrance of their apartment from the Park Lane side; they were returning home after seeing off Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz.

Several protests were staged outside the flats by Pakistani expats and activists of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) with demands that the demonstrations were aimed at taking possession of the Avenfield flats.
