ISLAMABAD:

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has challenged in the Supreme Court the decisions of the Islamabad High Court regarding the bails of PML-N leaders Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Ahsan Iqbal and Miftah Ismail.

NAB has filed petitions in the Supreme Court seeking revocation of bail of the three N-League members.

In a petition filed by NAB on Thursday, the apex court has been asked to quash the decisions of the IHC regarding the bails of Abbasi, Ismail and Iqbal in the LNG scandal and Narowal Sports City scandal, respectively.

The petition contends that the IHC ignored the facts in the cases of PML-N leaders Abbasi, Iqbal and Ismail.
