Shehbaz Sharif reaches Lahore after being released on bail
LAHORE (92 News) – Leader of Opposition in the National Assembly and Pakistan Muslim League-N president Shehbaz Sharif reached Lahore from Islamabad after being released on bail in the Ramazan Sugar Mills and Ashiana Housing cases.
Shehbaz Sharif reached Lahore via flight PK-385 from Islamabad. Tight security arrangements had been made on the arrival of Shehbaz Sharif at the airport and a large number of PML-N workers were also present at the airport to receive him.
Shehbaz Sharif gave a message of his arrival via Twitter and thanked everyone’s love and cooperation.
The Lahore High Court (LHC) had granted bail to Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif in the Ashiyana Housing Scheme and Ramazan Sugar Mills cases.
The court ordered to release him after furnishing two surety bonds worth Rs one million.
The court, however, had rejected the bail plea of Fawad Hassan Fawad in the assets beyond known sources of income case. However, he was granted bail in the Ashiyana Housing scandal.
The court remarked that Shehbaz Sharif is not the chief executive officer (CEO) of the Ramazan Sugar Mills.
Earlier, the LHC has dismissed the NAB plea for transferring the bail application of PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif to another bench. LHC Chief Justice Sardar Muhammad Shamim Khan heard the plea.
He remarked that allegations are already being leveled against the NAB. “Will the NAB get the bench formed of its own choice?” he questioned.
