NAB office clash: ATC extends bail of PML-N leaders till Oct 26


Lahore: On Friday, the Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) extended the temporary bail period of the leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) until October 26. The case involved the National Accountability Bureau (NAB). Maryam Nawaz, vice chairman of the Conflict Party outside the Lahore office.

According to detailed information, the expansion was awarded to Rana Sanaullah, Captain Raf Safdar and other leaders.

In September 2020, when Maryam Nawaz arrived at the NAB office, a conflict broke out between angry PML-N workers and the police. The case involved the illegal transfer of 180 acres of land at Raiwind.

PML-N workers – who accompanied Maryam Nawaz from Jati Umrah to the NAB office in a convoy – pelted stones at police officials and tried to break the barriers outside the anti-corruption watchdog’s office.

In retaliation, the police used aerial shooting, shelling and batons to disperse the angry crowd. Several protesters, including women, were arrested.

Maryam Nawaz left the NAB office, did not appear before the Accountability Bureau, and returned for the second time.

“Police threw stones at my car which broke its screen. I am here to give answers to the NAB questions. Why did you summon me if you are so scared? Now have some courage to listen to me,” the PML-N vice-president said.

She said that state terrorism and repression were shown in front of the National Bank office, and unarmed workers were tortured. She said that I was standing outside the Kookmin Bank door and asked them to answer me, but they did not open the Kookmin Bank office door.

The anti-corruption monitoring agency has leaked information about the notice to the media. She added that there were no allegations in the notice and the reason for calling me in this vague notice was to hurt me.
