ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hanif Abbasi was shifted to Attock jail from Adiala jail Rawalpindi on Saturday.
Abbasi was shifted to Attock jail on the directives of DIG Rawalpindi after a photo of Abbasi with Nawaz Sharif and others inside Adiala jail surfaced before the former premier’s release.
Inspector General (IG) Prisons Punjab on Thursday ordered an inquiry into the matter.
A search operation in Adiala jail was started for investigating the matter and more than 200 additional police personnel from different districts of Punjab were sent for the purpose.
On July 22, Abbasi was sentenced to life imprisonment by a special anti-narcotics court in the ephedrine quota case.— INP
