NAB-Niazi nexus behind Shehbaz’s arrest: Marriyum


LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb alleged on Thursday that her party’s president Shehbaz Sharif was arrested as a result of political victimization at the hands of the ruling party.

While strongly condemning the unprovoked and brutal baton-charging of PML-N workers, she demanded that officers who ordered this inhuman act should be reprimanded in a way that no one would ever dare anything like this again.

Talking to the media after submitting an application for action against the police officers behind this vengeful and inhuman act, she clarified that PML-N workers and supporters were absolutely peaceful at the NAB hearing. Marriyum demanded that the arrested PML-N workers be released with immediate effect.

Marriyum said she and other PML-N leaders have been appearing in courts since the last two years but were still unaware of Shehbaz’s fault.

The PML-N spokesperson said: “Cases are being registered against us in courts day and night but you have given a National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) to Aleema Bibi through the backdoor.”

“Imran Khan is behind her (Aleema’s) theft and money laundering,” she claimed.

“The arrest of Shehbaz Sharif is an outcome of the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) nexus with Imran Khan Niazi. The entire world gives examples of the development works done during the era of Shehbaz Sharif,” she said.

She underlined that farmers and common people are under stress at present. “The crops of farmers are dying. Where is Buzdar?” she asked.

The PML-N spokesperson said that the board was constituted for medical checkup of Mian Shehbaz Sharif after two weeks of waiting in vain.


PML-N leader Malik Muhammad Ahmad Khan has alleged that the Punjab police manhandled PML-N’s peaceful workers by baton charging them outside the accountability court in Lahore.

While talking to the media on Thursday, Malik said that PML-N had not made any plan to make the situation worse.

He said that supporters had only come outside the accountability court in the provincial capital to show their solidarity with Shehbaz Sharif.

He said that the police crossed their limits and lathi-charged peaceful workers, adding that police tortured the workers after breaking their own obstacles.

It is vital to mention here that PML-N President and Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif was presented before the court in the Ashiana Housing scam where a row occurred between the police and workers.
