Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif and Opposition Leader in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz condemned registration of a treason case against the PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif, reported 24NnewsHD TV channel.
It is pertinent to note that a treason case has been registered in Shahdara Police Station in Lahore against PML-N supremo and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif over provocative speeches on Monday. PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz and other senior leaders including Ayaz Sadiq, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Pervaiz Rashid, Khawaja Asif, Rana Sanaullah and Iqbal Zafar Jhagra have also been named in the case.
Earlier, a treason case was lodged against PML-N leader Safdar in Satellite Town Police Station, Gujranwala for using derogatory remarks against state institutions. PML-N MPA Imran Khalid Butt was also nominated in the case.
Opposition leader in the National Assembly talking to a media person said he is being harassed in National Accountability Bureau’s custody. He said: “I am fighting NAB-Niazi nexus boldly.”
PML-N President said: “Despite the fact that I am suffering from back pain, NAB authorities deliberately provide him food on the ground instead of the table.” The AC Judge remarked that any inhumane treatment will not be tolerated in judicial custody.
Shehbaz said this has been happening on directions of Prime Minister Imran Khan and Shehzad Akbar and warned that if his health is endangered, a case will be filed against Imran Khan and his advisor.
On the other hand, PML-N leader Hamza Shehbaz said Allah Almighty will give us success. “It is ironic that a treason case has been registered against a person who made Pakistan a nuclear power.” He condemned treason case registration against PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif.
Shehbaz Sharif appeared before the Accountability Court in Lahore in a money laundering case. The court issued warrants against Nusrat Shehbaz, Salman Shehbaz and adjourned the hearing till next date. NAB took Shehbaz Sharif and Hamza Shehbaz back to the NAB's custody amid tight security.
On the occasion, PML-N leaders Rohail Asghar, Nuzhat Sadiq, Shaza Fatima Khawaja, Rafaqat Dogar, Rabia Ahmed Butt, Hina Parvez Butt, Mian Abdul Rauf, Raja Khurram, Rahat Afza, Hafiz Amir Ali Awan, Imran Nafisa Amin, Syed Tauseef Shah, Chaudhry Shehbaz, Hasnain Haider Shah, Khalil Tahir Sindhu, Saba Sadiq and other party workers were present.
During the case hearing in Lahore, Shehbaz Sharif complained to the Judge Accountability Court about director general NAB and said despite back pain a chair was not provided to him.
