LAHORE: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has summoned (PML-N) Vice-President Maryam Nawaz on March 2 at 11 am in a Jati Umra land acquisition case.
According to the details, the PML-N leader has been summoned to appear before a three-member combined investigation team of NAB. Nawaz sharif’s daughter will be interrogated in the case.
National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has launched an investigation into the Sharif family for illegally acquiring hundreds of acres of land in Raiwind. NAB has said that in 2013, the Sharif family had acquired 3,568 kanals during the tenure of Shahbaz Sharif as chief minister. Out of it, 1,936 Kanal were allotted to the Sharif brothers’ mother Shamim Bibi, 96 Kanal each to Nawaz and Shahbaz and 1,440 to Maryam.
The previous hearing, on August 11, 2020, was adjourned after a clash between PMLN workers and police when Maryam Nawaz reached the NAB office.
Following the violent situation, the bureau cancelled the hearing. Many people were injured and around 50 men were rounded up after police fired tear gas besides hurling back stones at the activists, with each side blaming the other for triggering the clash.
