PML-N President and Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif was presented before an accountability court in Lahore on Saturday morning, which granted NAB his 14-day physical remand.

NAB informed the accountability court that it has arrested Shehbaz Sharif in the Ramzan Sugar Mills case. It has asked the court for his 15-day physical remand in the case. The bureau says the former Punjab chief minister used public funds to benefit the sugar mills.

Shehbaz was originally presented before the court in the Ashiana Iqbal Housing scam. NAB was asking for an extension in his physical remand. He has been in NAB custody since October 5.

His son Hamza Shahbaz, who is the leader of the opposition in the Punjab Assembly, was also present in the court.

Strict security measures were taken outside the court for Shehbaz’s arrival. The anti-riot force was deployed. During his previous appearances, PML-N workers gathered and tried to block his vehicle from going forward.

This time, the police stopped the PML-N supporters at Secretariat Chowk. They also barred them from entering the court premises. The route to the court has been blocked by containers.

The PML-N workers protested against these measures.
