Maryam Nawaz filed a new petition in Lahore High Court
LAHORE: Vice President of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice president Maryam Nawaz Sharif had filed a new petition in Lahore High Court.
She has challenged her arrest in Lahore High Court (LHC), by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) team in Chaudhry Sugar Mills case, on Monday.
According to details, the petition claimed that Maryam Nawaz is being subjected to political revenge and that the anti-corruption watch dog has not found single evidence against her. She further requested the court to release her from the jail.
Earlier, accountability court had rejected NAB’s plea seeking extension in Maryam’s physical remand and sent her to jail on judicial remand till October 9.
On August 8, NAB team had detained Maryam Nawaz outside the Kot Lakhpat Jail in Lahore for skipping appearance in Chaudhry Sugar Mills case due to meeting with her father and former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
