NAB office clash: Local court issues bailable arrest warrant against Captain (r) Safdar

By

Lahore: The Lahore District Court issued a bail arrest warrant for the leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) (r) Captain Safdar on Tuesday, in a case involving the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Lahore Representative of Maryam Nawaz, Vice Chairman of the Conflict Party outside the office.

According to the details, the court heard the police’s request against the leader of PML-N at the police station in Islampura.

What I want to mention here is that the Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) has confirmed temporary bail for 30 suspects, including senior leaders of PML-N Rana Sanaullah and Captain(r) Safdar.

In September 2020, when Maryam Nawaz arrived at the NAB office, clashes 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.

“The police threw a stone at my car, which smashed its screen. I am here to provide answers to NAB questions. If you are so scared, why call me? Now have the courage to listen to me,” PML-N vice chairman Say.

She said that state terrorism and repression were displayed in front of the National Bank office and that 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 supervision 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.
