Opposition Leader in the National Assembly (NA) Shehbaz Sharif has been reached Lahore on Friday night after release from sub jail in Islamabad. The Lahore High Court on Thursday (Feb 14) approved Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif’s bail petitions in Ashiana and Ramzan Sugar Mills scandal and directed to release the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader.
Shehbaz was taken into custody on October, last year. On January 22, Shehbaz had filed a bail plea in the LHC stating, “The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) made a case contrary to the law and arrested me. The case was made on political basis.” “Whatever I did was in accordance with the law and Constitution. Not even an inch of official land was given to anyone and LHC should accept my bail plea,” the petition had added.
NAB had accused Shehbaz of misusing his powers while being the chief minister of Punjab and directed to LDA to undertake Ashiana Iqbal Project under Public Private Partnership mode. NAB states this was done in order to give unlawful benefit to blue-eyed firm namely M/s Bismillah Engineering Service Company, which was a proxy firm to M/s Paragon City
