NAB approves inquiry against Shehbaz in assets beyond income

National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Saturday has approved inquiry against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president and Opposition Leader in National Assembly (NA) Shehbaz Sharif in a case pertaining to assets beyond income.
According to details, the bureau will ask another 10-day physical remand of PML-N president from accountability court on October 29. On the other hand, NAB has claimed to have found more evidence against Shehbaz Sharif in Ashiana Housing scandal.
The anti-corruption watchdog has accused Shehbaz of misusing the authorities of Punjab Land Development Company’s (PLDC) board of directors.
While recording the statements, former officials of the company revealed that contracts were awarded to the favorite firm after cancelation on the directives of then Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif.
