Sugar Mills case: Maryam appears before accountability court as NAB seeks 15-day remand

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz Sharif, who was arrested by the National Accountability Bureau on Thursday, appeared before an accountability court today in connection with the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case.
Yousaf Abbas, a cousin of Maryam Nawaz who was also arrested by NAB the same day, was produced before the court alongside the PML-N leader, as the accountability watchdog sought a 15-day physical remand for the two.
PML-N leader Hamza Shehbaz, the son of opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif, was also present in the court in relation to the Ramzan Sugar Mills case.
A scuffle broke out between PML-N workers, who had gathered outside the court premises, and police personnel as Maryam Nawaz was escorted to the hearing earlier today.
Enraged PML-N workers were seen pelting stones at the police, with at least one policeman reportedly injured in the ensuing chaos.
The court has reserved its judgment on NAB’s appeal for a 15-day physical remand of Maryam Nawaz.
