- Accountability court dismissed NAB's request for Shehbaz's physical remand.
An accountability court sent on Tuesday Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif to jail on judicial remand in the money laundering case.
During the hearing today, Sharif told the court that he has been in the National Accountability Bureau's (NAB) custody for 85 days. He continued that the whole week, NAB only questioned him for 15 minutes, adding that he was asked questions which he had already been asked before.
The bureau said it is not done with its investigation, adding that the PML-N leader was not cooperating.
NAB then requested the physical remand of the Opposition Leader in the National Assembly. However, the court rejected NAB's request and sent Sharif to jail, local media reported.
The PML-N president will be sent to Kot Lakhpat Jail on a 14-day remand.
