Shehbaz Sharif, Hamza Shahbaz parole extended for one-day

Shehbaz Sharif, Hamza Shahbaz parole extended for one-day

This was confirmed by Punjab Chief Minister's Special Assistant on Information Firdous Ashiq Awan in her tweet. She said that the Punjab government extended the parole of Shehbaz and Hamza on the directions of the Punjab chief minister. "Parole application of both PML-N leaders has been extended for next 24 hours," she added.

Usman Buzdar gave approval for the extension during a consultative meeting convened to take up a plea seeking extension in the father-son duo’s parole period.

The PML-N had submitted an application to the Punjab Home Department for extension in parole period of its president Shehbaz Sharif and his son Hamza Shahbaz. They were released on a five-day parole period on November 27 (Friday), following the death of Begum Shamim Akhtar, which ended yesterday.
