LAHORE: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has summoned Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice-president Maryam Nawaz on March 2 at 11:00 AM in a case pertaining to illegal transfer of 180 acres of land in Raiwind.
The previous hearing, on August 11, 2020, was adjourned after a clash had erupted between outraged PML-N workers and police when Maryam Nawaz reached the NAB office.
According to officials, PML-N workers – who accompanied Maryam Nawaz from Jati Umrah to the NAB office in a convoy – had pelted stones at police officials and tried to break the barriers outside the anti-corruption watchdog’s office.
In retaliation, the police resorted to aerial firing, shelling and baton charge to disperse the infuriated crowd. Several protesters including women were arrested. Following the violent situation, the NAB had postponed the hearing.
On the other hand, Maryam Nawaz had alleged that police pelted her car with stones.
