Arrest warrants out for ex-army chief’s brother in Ashiana housing scam

A reply was submitted on behalf of Superintendent Kot Lakhpat Jail, wherein it was stated that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Shehbaz Sharif was lodged in a sub-jail in the federal capital with a medical board advising him bed rest.

The court has ordered to produce Shehbaz before the court on next hearing.

To which, Sharif’s counsel Amjad Pervez submitted that if medical board permits then he has no objection in producing Shehbaz before the court.

However, NAB Prosecutor Waris Janjua argued that the matter was being delayed as the same ‘reasons’ were used during the last hearing.

At this stage, a police inspector told the court that raids were conducted to arrest Kamran, Hussain, and Zia after issuance of their arrest warrants during the last hearing, but their houses were locked.
