PML-N to form committee for consultations over Shehbaz’s arrest: Marriyum
LAHORE: The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb on Saturday said her party had decided to constitute a committee to hold consultations over the arrest of party president, Shehbaz Sharif.
“The committee will decide action plan regarding the case,” she said while talking to media in Lahore.
She said her party was being victimized in the name of accountability.
An accountability court has granted 10-day physical remand of the PML-N president in the Rs14 billion Ashiyana-i-Iqbal housing project scam.
While presenting his arguments, the NAB prosecutor requested the judge to remand the PML-N leader in their custody for interrogation for 15 days.
He said the former Punjab chief minister misused his powers, causing a huge loss to the national kitty.
The lawyer said Shehbaz had cancelled a contract awarded to M/s Ch A Latif & Sons for construction of Ashiana Iqbal Housing project and handed it to his favourite firm.
He sought the PML-N leader’s custody for further investigation into the scam.
The anti-graft body a day earlier arrested the the leader of the opposition in the National Assembly at its Lahore office where he was summoned to record his statement in connection with the Punjab Saaf Pani Company case.
