LAHORE (92 News) - An accountability court in Lahore on Tuesday extended the physical remand of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz President Shehbaz Sharif until October 20 in money laundering and assets beyond means references.

AC Judge Jawadul Hassan heard the case in which Shehbaz Sharif and his son Hamza Shehbaz were produced before court. Strict security measures were taken by the administration to deter any untoward incident.

During the hearing, the NAB prosecutor requested the court to hand over Shehbaz Sharif to them on 15-day physical remand stating that investigation in the matter related to receiving and giving away expensive gifts still remains.

During the proceedings, Shehbaz Sharif stated that he is suffering from back pain and facing hardships in offering prayers. “I’m being punished on the guidelines of the PM and Shehzad Akbar”, Shehbaz alleged before the court.

The court reserved the judgment in NAB’s plea of granting physical remand of Shehbaz Sharif, which was announced later.

Earlier, the names of ten members of Sharif family including his PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif's wife and two daughters have been included in exit control list (ECL) in money laundering case. The federal authorities have put the names of PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif’s wife and two daughters have also been put on no-fly list.

On September 29, accountability court granted the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) 14-day physical remand of Shehbaz Sharif, a day after his arrest.
