Shehbaz Sharif's transit remand extended in Ashiana Housing scam

LAHORE: A National Accountability Bureau (NAB) court on Monday granted a one-day transit remand of Opposition Leader Shehbaz Sharif to attend the National Assembly session.
Earlier, Prosecutor Waris Januja had submitted a request on behalf of the jail superintendent for Shehbaz’s transit remand. The plea stated that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president 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. Prosecutor Waris Januja had submitted a request on behalf of the jail superintendent for Shehbaz’s transit remand.
