LAHORE: Sons of Shehbaz Sharif paid him a visit at the Lahore office of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) ahead of the October 14 by-elections, media reports said Saturday.
According to reports, Hamza Shehbaz and Suleman Shehbaz Sharif visited their father who is currently on a 10-day remand in the NAB’s custody.
Within the first week of October, an accountability court in Lahore granted 10-day physical remand of PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif to the NAB in the Ashiana Housing Scheme case.
Shehbaz – who was taken into custody by the NAB – was produced before the accountability court while the watchdog sought his custody.
The opposition leader in the National Assembly is accused of ordering the cancellation of a contract given to successful bidder Chaudhry Latif and Sons for the Ashiana Housing Scheme, and engineering the subsequent award of the contract to Lahore Casa Developers, a proxy group of Paragon City Private Limited, resulting in a loss of Rs193 million to the exchequer.
