LHC extends protective bail granted to Hamza Shehbaz
LAHORE – The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday extended protective bail to Hamza Shehbaz, the son of former Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who is facing inquiries initiated by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

Hamza feared the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) may arrest him when he appears for investigations into cases such as Punjab Saaf Pani Company (PSPC).

Extending the protective bail of the opposition leader in Punjab assembly, the court granted him bail till November 20 and ordered the NAB to not arrest him till the next hearing.

The division bench of LHC earlier granted protective bail to the petitioner till Oct 13 and ordered him to deposit surety bonds of Rs10,00,000 each.

Earlier this year, NAB had summoned Hamza in connection to the Punjab Saaf Pani Company case.

The PML-N leader and his brother are also facing inquiry pertaining to the illegal construction of a bridge for their sugar mills during the previous tenure of Shehbaz Sharif.

Hamza is regularly appearing before NAB while his brother Salman is absconding in these cases.

On the other hand, the NAB has arrested former CM Shehbaz Sharif in connection to the Ashiyana housing scheme case.
