Earlier in the day, the National Accountability Bureau opposed a petition of Nawaz Sharif in the Supreme Court, seeking bail on health grounds.
The NAB in its reply submitted in the apex court said that the bail plea of Sharif have no reference of any life-threatening disease to the petitioner and pleaded to the court to turn down his bail request.
“The applicant has no ailment, which poses threat to his life”, the NAB claimed in its reply.
