Motion submitted in Punjab Assembly Condemning Shehbaz Arrest
The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Saturday submitted a motion condemning the arrest of Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif in a corruption probe.

The PML-N president was arrested by NAB on Friday in the Ashiana Iqbal Housing Scheme case and was produced before accountability court, Judge Najmul Hasan. The court granted a 10-day physical remand of Shehbaz to NAB.

The resolution stated that below-the-belt tactics are being used to save a failed government.

Protests will be carried out throughout the country if Shehbaz Sharif is not released before the by-polls, the resolution added.

The by-polls are scheduled to take place on October 14.

Earlier, an accountability court granted the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) a 10-day physical remand of former Punjab Chief Minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif in the Ahsiana Iqbal Housing Scheme case.

Shehbaz was taken to NAB office in Thokar Niaz Baig after being remanded in the accountability bureau’s custody.

Earlier, the court had reserved its judgment on NAB’s plea to send the PML-N president on a 15-day physical remand.

The leader of the opposition in the National Assembly, who was arrested by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Friday in the Ashiana Iqbal Housing Scheme case, was produced before accountability court Judge Najmul Hasan.

The former Punjab chief minister was represented by Azam Nazeer Tarar and Amjad Pervez.

Earlier, Shehbaz was brought to the accountability court in an armoured vehicle that was escorted by a fire brigade, an ambulance and police mobiles.

The PML-N president’s sons, Hamza and Salman Shehbaz are the only ones who have been allowed entry inside the court premises. Meanwhile, PML-N leaders Marriyum Aurangzeb, Khurram Dastgir and Saira Afzal Tarrar are present outside the court as they were not granted entry.

Earlier, a medical examination of Shehbaz was conducted before taking him to the accountability court and he was declared fit.
