LAHORE (92 News) – The National Accountability Court (NAB) again arrested Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif after the cancellation of his interim bail in the Lahore High Court. A bench comprising Justice Sardar Ahmed Naeem and Justice Farooq Haider cancelled the bail after hearing the detailed arguments. He was arrested from courtroom after the cancellation of his bail. Earlier, Shehbaz Sharif was arrested in the Ashiyana Housing scandal. Azam Nazir Tarar advocate, counsel for Shehbaz Sharif, presented the arguments. He contended that his client had paid the tax on his income and got it audited. The NAB is not accepting the tax return after 20 years, he added. Shehbaz Sharif came to the rostrum and said that he was standing before court even after paying the tax for 12 years. Not a single penny was transferred to his account from any company. I withdraw the bail application if a single penny is proved against me, he added. The PML-N president said that the government wants to gag him through the arrest before the local bodies elections. The NAB official is present here who said that I was not for the investigations. My father was the son of a poor farmer who started his business through the loan. In 1970, our business became the biggest institution, he added. Meanwhile, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) workers strongly protested against the arrest of Shehbaz Sharif. They also chanted slogans against the NAB. They also scuffled with the police. The NAB team shifted Shehbaz Sharif to office at Thokar Niaz Baig. He will be presented in court on Tuesday.
