Shehbaz appears before NAB in Saaf Pani, Punjab Power companies case


LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President and former Punjab chief minister (CM) Shehbaz Sharif on Wednesday appeared before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) regarding a probe pertaining to alleged corruption in the Punjab Power Company (PPC) and the Saaf Pani Company (SPC).

The anti-graft body had summoned the former CM on July 5 but Sharif had requested the bureau to allow him to appear a day earlier due to personal commitments.

The PML-N president had been summoned by the anti-graft bureau as he was accused of misusing authority while being the Punjab CM.

After Shehbaz had failed to appear before the anti-graft bureau, it had asked the police to produce him before the bureau. The former CM had already skipped two NAB hearing in cases pertaining to the irregularities in the Saaf Pani Company and Ashiana Housing scams.
