Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz Sharif
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz Sharif, who was arrested by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Thursday, was remanded into NAB’s custody till August 21.

Yousaf Abbas, a cousin of Maryam Nawaz who was also arrested by NAB the same day, was produced before the court alongside the PML-N leader, as the accountability watchdog sought a 15-day physical remand for the two.

PML-N leader Hamza Shehbaz, the son of opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif, was also present in the court in relation to the Ramzan Sugar Mills case.

A scuffle broke out between PML-N workers, who had gathered outside the court premises, and police personnel as Maryam Nawaz was escorted to the hearing earlier today.

Enraged PML-N workers were seen pelting stones at the police, with at least one policeman reportedly injured in the ensuing chaos.

The court has reserved its judgment on NAB’s appeal for a 15-day physical remand of Maryam Nawaz.
