NAB summons Shehbaz Sharif’s son for ‘possessing assets beyond his income’
LAHORE: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has summoned President Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Shehbaz Sharif’s son Salman Shehbaz on Wednesday (October 10) for interrogation into accumulation of assets allegedly beyond known sources of income, ARY News reported.
He has been directed to appear before the NAB with all the relevant documents.
It is pertinent to mention that an accountability court has granted 10-day physical remand of Shehbaz Sharif in the Rs14 billion Ashiyana housing project scam.
The NAB presented the Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly before the court in an armored vehicle amid tight security.
On Friday, the Bureau arrested the PML-N president inside its Lahore office where he was summoned to record his statement in connection with the Punjab Saaf Pani Company case.
Shehbaz reached the NAB office at 2:50pm. A combined investigation team of the country’s top anti-graft watchdog quizzed him for an hour over his alleged role in awarding contract to his “favourite firm” in violation of laws in the Ashiyana-i-Iqbal housing project.
Hamza, Shehbaz’s another son, complained that his father was summoned in the Saaf Pani Company case, but arrested in the Ashiyana-e-Iqbal Housing project case. “This joke of the arrest of the national leader won’t last longer”, he said.
