ISLAMABAD - New developments have been reported from the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Sunday regarding Shahbaz Sharif case.

NAB has reportedly turned down the Sharif family’s plea for meeting with Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif.

NAB has been quoted as saying that investigations against him in assets beyond means case have entered in crucial stage.

According to the details, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his other family members requested for permission to meet the PML-N president, who is currently in the accountability bureau’s custody in the Ashiana Iqbal Housing Scheme case.

Whereas, the NAB authorities have rejected the plea, citing that the investigations against the suspect have entered in the concluding phase. Sources said that Shehbaz Sharif will be produced before the court tomorrow and the request will be considered, if the family will ask for meeting after the court proceedings.

The sources further said that the NAB prosecutor will seek extension in Shehbaz’s physical remand during the hearing.

The NAB, on October 5, had arrested Shehbaz Sharif in Rs14 billion Ashiana housing society case.
