LHC bars NAB from arresting Captain (R) Safdar

LAHORE – Lahore High court has barred the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to arrest Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader captain (retd) Safdar.

The Lahore High Court (LHC) has granted bail to Captain (R) Safdar.

LHC heard a case on Tuesday pertaining to grant of protective bail to PML-N leader wherein Safdar expressed that National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa summoned him in a case but it did not mention the case.

Safdar, fearing arrest, asked the court to grant him protective bail for a period of ten days which was accepted.

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) had earlier suspended the sentences against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law retired captain Mohammad Safdar and released them from Rawalpindi’s Adiala Jail in September.
