The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Friday has conducted a raid at the residence of Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif, reportedly to arrest Hamza Shahbaz.
As per initial reports, a NAB team comprising seven to eight members has reached Shahbaz’s house, 96H Model Town and they are still trying to enter the house but are facing resistance. According to a party spokesperson, opposition leader in the Punjab Assembly, Hamza Shahbaz, is present at the house.
Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) leader Marriyum Aurangzeb has condemned the NAB raid, saying that the anti-graft body came without a warrant and did not complete other formalities. She said Hamza has been appearing before NAB and arrest orders are unjust.
However, as per NAB ordinance, they are not required to inform the accused as in that case, accused gets interim bails, hindering the investigations.
This is a developing story and will be updated accordingly.
