NAB arrests Shahbaz Sharif from LHC

32

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Monday arrested PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif from the Lahore High Court (LHC) after his bail was rejected by the court in the money-laundering case.

The LHC rejected the bail petition filed by the PML-N president in the asset beyond means and money-laundering case and cancelled his interim bail before NAB officials took him into custody from the court premises.

A large number of PML-N workers, including women, who were at the court to support the former chief minister of Punjab, raised chants against the anti-graft watchdog and the incumbent PTI-led government.

Shortly after the arrest, a scuffle broke out between the security personnel and the Shehbaz’s supporters.
