The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has got a case registered with the Chung Police in Lahore against Maryam Nawaz, the daughter of ex-premier Nawaz Sharif, and other PML-N leaders for ‘attacking’ police and NAB officials.

The case has been registered on the application of NAB Deputy Director Chaudhry Asghar. The accountability official alleged that 188 PML-N members, including Maryam, her spouse Safdar, ex-minister Rana Sanaullah, Bilal Yasin, Danial Aziz, Pervez Rasheed, Talal Chaudhry, Musadaq Malik and Uzma Bukhari attacked police in uniform and NAB officials on Monday. 

PML-N plan 

The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has decided to nominate Prime Minister Imran Khan, Shehzad Akbar and others on charge of attempt to murder Maryam Nawaz, the daughter of ex-premier Nawaz Sharif, according to a spokesperson for PML-N.

Marriyum Aurangzeb said the party decided to approach the court as local police were not receiving their complaint. She took a swipe at Prime Minister Imran Khan for, what she called, doing political persecution in the name of accountability. 

On the other hand, PM accountability aide Shahzad Akbar said using innocent workers to safeguard personal interests was ‘childish and regrettable.’ He stressed the footages showed PML-N’s planned attack on NAB.

The bureau summoned Maryam in a case of ‘illegal transfer of 200 acres of land in Raiwind’.  Allegedly the property was transferred in the name of Maryam Nawaz in 2014 whereas 100 kanals each were transferred to her father Nawaz and uncle Shehbaz.
