LAHORE (92 News) – An accountability court in Lahore rejected NAB plea for remand extension of Opposition Leader in National Assembly (NA) Shehbaz Sharif and sent him Kot Lakhpat Jail on 14-day judicial remand in the money laundering and assets beyond means case.

During the hearing, Shehbaz Sharif was presented before court and NAB prosecutor argued that he is not cooperation in investigation. He also pleaded from the court to extend physical remand of Shehbaz Sharif.

Shehbaz Sharif said that he was investigated only 15 minutes within all the week.  He said the arguments of the anti-graft body’s investigation officer are contrary to facts to which the official replied that interrogations in 2018 were conducted of the Ashiana Housing Scheme and Ramzan Sugar Mills cases.

The court sent Shebaz Sharif on judicial remand till October 27.

On the other hand, Hamza Shehbaz Sharif produced before court in Ramzan Sugar mills case and the court adjourned the hearing till 31 October.
