The Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president was presented in court today. During the hearing, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) sought a 15-day extension in his physical remand.

The court earlier reserved its decision on NAB’s request for an extension but later extended it by 10 days, including a three-day transit remand.The court then ordered that Shehbaz be produced again on November 7.

“Indian spy Kulbushan Yadhav was allowed to meet his family but I am not permitted to meet mine even once a week. Such restrictions are not imposed even during martial law,” regretted Shehbaz while giving his defense before the court.
