NAB summons Shehbaz Sharif’s wife, daughters in illegal assets probe in Lahore

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has summoned former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif’s wife and daughters in assets beyond means case, reports local media on Saturday.

Prior to the NAB’s action, police have surrounded the area and have not allowed anyone to go to the area.

Commenting on the development, PML-N’s spokesperson Maryam Aurangzeb, said what kind of accountability is this? How can one raid at someone’s residential place without giving any notice,” she asked.

The NAB has already summoned Shehbaz’s wife on April 17, daughter Rabia Sharif on April 18, and Javeria Sharif on April 19.

They have been summoned for questioning regarding business transactions, the NAB official added.

Hamza Shehbaz has also been summoned on April 15 in a case pertaining to construction of a nullah on Ramaza Sugar Mill from government money.

The LHC on Monday restrained NAB from arresting Hamza. NAB had carried out two successive raids last week at Shehbaz’s Model Town residence to arrest Hamza.

However, NAB has denied any raid and clarified the officials went there just to serve the notices after Hamza Shahbaz denied to answers about the questions regarding assets of his mummy and sisters and asked NAB to question them instead of him.
