Motorway police slap ex-PM Abbasi with ticket for overspeeding
ISLAMABAD - Former prime minister, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was issued a challan ticket by the National Highways and Motorways Police for overspeeding on a thoroughfare leading to Islamabad.

According to the ticket, Abbasi's vehicle was moving at 132 KM/H while the set limit by NHA was 120 Kilometers per hour; the vehicle was being driven by the driver of the former premier.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi served as the prime minister of Pakistan following the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif by the Supreme Court of Pakistan in the Panama Papers Case.

Abbasi kept himself low-profile even during his stint as the highest office bearer of the country and is lauded for living a simple yet graceful life as a politician.
