Both PML-N leaders have secured bail as only one day is left from their appearance before Federal Investigation Agency in a case related to Ramzan Sugar Mills.
During the proceedings, Shehbaz Sharif told additional session judge Ali Abbas that he was not a director of the sugar mill and was involved in policy making.
“I had refused to subsidise the sugar mills in the past. I was asked to reduce the price of sugarcane but I refused. I did not want to harm the farmers,” Shahbaz said.
The judge asked Shehbaz’s counsel that whether this was the first bail application to which he said, “yes”. The court allowed interim bail to Shahbaz and Hamza and ordered them to submit bail bonds of Rs1 million each. The court granted them bail till July 10.
