Court approves one-day transit remand of Shehbaz to attend NA session

F.P. Report

LAHORE: A National Accountability Bureau (NAB) court has granted a one-day transit remand of Shehbaz Sharif to attend the National Assembly session on Monday.

According to details, Prosecutor Waris Januja had submitted a request on behalf of the jail superintendent for Shehbaz’s transit remand.

The petition stated that the leader of the opposition in National Assembly has to be flown to Islamabad to attend the NA session scheduled for today.

Approving the jail superintendent’s request, the court granted one-day transit remand of the PML-N president.

Earlier, NA speaker Asad Qaiser issued order for production of Shehbaz for a fourth time to allow him to attend the session.

Shehbaz, who was arrested on October 5 in connection to the Ashiana Iqbal Housing Scheme case, was sent to the Kot Lakhpat jail on judicial remand on Thursday after an accountability court in Lahore dismissed NAB’s request for a further extension in his physical remand.
