ISLAMABAD – An accountability court on Thursday extended physical remand of former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi till August 15 in LNG case.

The anti-corruption watchdog requested the court to grant physical remand of Abbasi for further 14 days. The court while accepting the plea of NAB ordered to present Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on August 15 before it.
