LAHORE: National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Director General (DG) Shahzad Saleem on Wednesday approached the Islamabad High Court (IHC) against the Public Accounts Committee’s (PAC) decision to summon him in the wake of sexual harassment allegations levelled by Tayyaba Gul, ARY News reported,

The petitioner has made National Assembly secretary, PAC Wing and others party in the plea, which states that the notice issued by the PAC was beyond its jurisdiction.
