LAHORE (Khyber News) – National Accountability Bureau (NAB) team has arrested President of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Opposition Leader in National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif in money laundering case.
According to details, NAB team arrested the PML-N leader when Lahore High Court (LHC) rejected his bail plea after detailed arguments from both sides. The anti-graft watchdog will present Opposition Leader before the court tomorrow and request physical remand of the accused.
Maryam Nawaz strongly condemned arrest of Shehbaz Sharif and said that PML-N President has been arrested only because he refused to play in the hands of those who wanted to use him against his brother.
She paid tribute to Opposition Leader and said Shehbaz Sharif preferred standing behind prison bars than to stand against his brother.
Reacting to the arrest, Marriyum Aurangzeb, spokesperson of PML-N, said that even today, corruption of even a single penny was not proved and arrests of opposition leaders is proof of PM Imran Khan’s ill intentions.
She said “Government has decided to rig upcoming local bodies election and for this reason PML-N President has been arrested by NAB-Niazi nexus. I want to say it clearly that NAB has arrested Shehbaz Sharif on directions of Imran Khan”.
