The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday disposed of the petition filed by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz for the return of her passport when she told the court she wanted to withdraw it, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

A two-member special bench of the LHC, headed by Justice Ali Baqar Najfi, heard the case.  

Maryam had approached the LHC around a week ago for the return of her passport, which she said she had surrendered on the court order in Chaudhry Sugar Mills case in 2019 in lieu of which she had been granted bail. 

She said now when she wanted to go to Saudi Arabia for performing Umrah, the only impediment was that she did not have the passport.   

It merits mentioning here that the LHC while granting bail to Maryam Nawaz in Chaudhry Sugar Mills case in 219 had ordered her to surrender her passport.
