LAHORE: An accountability court in Lahore on Friday indicted Nusrat Shehbaz, the wife of PML-N President and Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly, in a money laundering case.

The verdict was announced at a hearing pertaining to money laundering cases against Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif and his son Leader of the Opposition in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

The accountability court indicted Nusrat Shahbaz and summoned the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) witness for the next hearing. She was earlier declared a proclaimed offender after a prolonged absence.

The accountability court directed prosecution witnesses to appear at the next hearing to record their depositions and adjourned the hearing until October 18.

Hamza Shehbaz also appeared in the court, while Shehbaz’s request for exemption was accepted. The opposition leader suffered back pain after the fall from stairs and doctors have advised him complete rest.
