LAHORE: PML-N President and Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Mian Shehbaz Sharif was offloaded from a Qatar-bound flight at Allama Iqbal International Airport Lahore early Saturday morning.
Shehbaz was scheduled to leave for Doha from the Lahore airport today onboard a foreign airline. After spending some days in quarantine in Doha, he had planned to fly to London where he was to consult his doctors.
FIA immigration officers barred him from boarding the flight that was scheduled to take off at 4:50 am.
Shehbaz was issued a boarding pass with his luggage scanned but was stopped from boarding the plane due to his name still being on the blacklist.
The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Friday permitted Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President and Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Mian Shehbaz Sharif to fly abroad for medical treatment.
The Court in its conditional permission allowed Shahbaz Sharif to go abroad from May 8 to July 5.
Shahbaz had approached the court to grant him permission, citing having gone to London earlier and returned.
