Shehbaz Sharif, Hamza Shahbaz indicted in Ramzan Sugar Mills case

Accountability court on Tuesday has indicted Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif and Opposition Leader in National Assembly (NA) Hamza Shahbaz in Ramzan Sugar Mills case. 

During the hearing, the accused denied all the charges and said that they had saved Rs2300 billion, assuring that the money was not misused. The court has summoned witnesses and adjourned the hearing. 

It is worth mentioning that LHC barred NAB from arresting Hamza till 17 April. The LHC granted bail to Hamza on the surety bonds of Rs 10m. A two member bench comprising Justice Malik Shehzad and Justice Mirza Rauf heared a case pertaining to pre arrest bail of PML-N leader. The court after hearing the arguments from both sides granted Hamza pre arrest bail till 17 April. Earlier, the Lahore High Court on February 14 granted bail to Shehbaz in the Ashiana Iqbal Housing scheme and Ramzan Sugar Mills cases.
