LAHORE: An accountability court on Saturday extended physical remand of Pakistan Muslim League-N leader Hamza Shehbaz for seven more days in the illegal assets case. Hamza was produced before the court where his lawyer opposed National Accountability Court’s plea for extension in the remand period. He stated that NAB had already been granted more than 52 days of remand. There was no need for more physical remand, he added. The court approved NAB’s plea and extended physical remand of the PML-N leader. The court also ordered NAB to produce Hamza on Aug 10.
