Police have restored to aerial firing, shelling and baton charge to disperse the angry PML-N workers outside the NAB office and have arrested many workers including the women workers of the party.
LAHORE: (UrduPoint/Pakistan Point News-August 11th, 2020) A clash erupted between outraged Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) workers and police as party’s vice-president Maryam Nawaz reached National Accountability Bureau (NAB) office regarding a case of illegal transfer of 200 acres of land in Raiwind.
PML-N workers who accompanied Maryam Nawaz from Jati Umrah to the NAB office in a convoy pelted stones at police officials deputed there outside the office of NAB and tried to break the barriers outside the office.
“Police threw stones at my car which broke its screen. I am here to give answers to the NAB questions. Why did you summon me if you are so scared? Now have some courage to listen to me,” the PML-N vice-president said.
The National Accountability Bureau has deferred Maryam Nawaz’s hearing and has decided to file cases against the demonstrators. Gates of the NAB office have been shut down. However, Maryam Nawaz refused to leave the premises of the NAB despite that the officials asked her to leave.
The property was transferred in the name of Maryam Nawaz in 2014 whereas 100 kanals each were transferred to former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and erstwhile Punjab CM Shehbaz Sharif – father and uncle of Maryam.
It may be mentioned here that the rules and regulations of the Lahore Development Authority (LDA) were ignored while transferring the lands. The property was declared as green land to stop construction around the Sharif family’s terrain.
