Model Town case: Shehbaz to be presented before SC as it hears petition for new JIT
National Accountability Bureau (NAB) officials will present former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif before the Supreme Court’s Lahore Registry today (Monday) as it will hear a petition seeking the formation of a new joint investigation team (JIT) to probe the Model Town case.

A two-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar will hear the petition filed by Bisma Amjad, who had been affected by the incident.

The top court has issued notices to 139, including former premier Nawaz Sharif and former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif.

According to sources, NAB Lahore had been sent a notice to present Shehbaz before the court for today’s hearing. The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz president has been in NAB’s custody since October 5 in connection to the Ashiana Iqbal Housing Scheme case.

At least 14 people were killed and 100 others injured in police action against Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) workers in Lahore’s Model Town area during an ‘anti-encroachment operation’ on June 17, 2014.
