LHC Stops NAB From Arresting Capt Safdar

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) restrained on Monday the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) from arresting former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar.

A two-judge bench of the LHC, headed by Justice Sarfraz Dogar, issued a notice to the corruption watchdog to submit its response to a petition filed by the PML-N leader. The court barred the bureau from arresting him until March 29.

Capt Safdar challenged the NAB’s call-up notice in an assets beyond means case.
