In a blow, Maryam Nawaz Sharif assets being frozen by NAB: sources
*ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has decided to get assets of PML-N vice president Maryam Nawaz and her cousin Yousaf Abbas frozen following their arrest in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case.*
Sources within the anti-graft watchdog say the bureau will soon write to relevant banks and other institutions, asking them to freeze the movable and immovable assets owned by both the accused.
Maryam and her cousin are currently in NAB custody on physical remand in connection with an ongoing investigation into alleged money laundering to purchase shares in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills.
Earlier, on Aug 21, an accountability court had extended their physical remand for another 14 days.
NAB officials produced Maryam Nawaz and Yousaf Abbas before Accountability Judge Naeem Arshad amid tight security.
The NAB requested the court to extend the physical remand of both accused for further probe.
