Shehbaz Sharif’s arrest


NAB had arrested Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif in the Ashiana-e-Iqbal Housing Scheme scam on ‎October 5. The former chief minister was charged with awarding illegal contracts to his favorite firm.‎

He was apprehended during his appearance before NAB in Saaf Pani Company scam. Sources told that ‎three files were tabled before him. The bureau quizzed Sharif regarding a tender awarded to a private ‎consultancy company for a survey of the Saaf Pani company.‎

The PML-N president had failed to satisfy the probing team of the bureau during the investigation and ‎was ultimately arrested.‎

The anti-graft watchdog had claimed that the company did not conduct any kind of survey but ‎nevertheless was provided a lucrative sum of Rs 1.5 billion.‎

Ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s principal secretary Fawad Hassan Fawad became an approver in the ‎case. Fawad Hassan Fawad, in his statement before NAB, had claimed that he had awarded a contract ‎to a “favourite firm” in the Rs14 billion Ashiana Housing project at the behest of Shahbaz Sharif.‎

The anti-graft agency said that the contract for the housing scheme was won by a construction ‎company titled Chaudhry Latif and Sons but Sharif cancelled it and later on awarded the contract to ‎Lahore Casa Developers – a proxy group of Paragon City (Pvt) Limited, which is said to be owned by ex-‎Railways Minister Saad Rafique”.‎
