Shahbaz Sharif physical remand extended by 14 days

Shahbaz Sharif physical remand extended by 14 days

LAHORE - Former CM Shahbaz Sharif was presented before the Accountability Court on Tuesday.

The accountability court granted the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) a 14-day extension in the physical remand of former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif in the Ashiana Housing Scheme case.

The court had earlier reserved its decision on NAB's request for a 14-day extension in the PML-N president's remand. However, the court later accepted the accountability bureau's request and granted an extension.

Earlier today, NAB presented Shehbaz before the court in Lahore as his 10-day remand in the housing scheme case ended today.

Strict security arrangements were in place on routes leading to the court premises with blockades installed in several places as Shehbaz was presented in court resulting in severe inconvenience for citizens commuting to office and schools.

The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president was transported to the court in a car with tinted windows. Shehbaz's sons Hamza and Salman were also present in the accountability court for the hearing.
