The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday granted bail to Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President and daughter of deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz, who was arrested by the National Accountability Bureau on Aug.8 in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case.
As the court sent the suspects to jail on judicial remand, Maryam's lawyer requested that she be sent to Kot Lakhpat Jail Lahore instead of Camp Jail Lahore. Pervez said that there were no arrangements for female prisoners in Camp Jail.
Outside the courtroom, a clash took place between police and PML-N workers including women. The activists pelted stones on policemen. One cop was injured. PML-N member of the Punjab Assembly Uzma Bokhari fell unconscious because of the fracas.
NAB's lawyer said that the investigations with Maryam had not yet been completed and requested an extension in remand for that purpose. In response, Maryam's lawyer Amjad Pervez said that the investigation had been carried out in all cases and the trial had been completed.
"It was nice. This is how it normally happens in Pakistan. What is there to object to it? I think it's perfectly okay,” Maryam Nawaz remarked. Maryam and Hamza sang at one of the events held in Lahore a day ago and their videos have been circulating on social media.
"They are the people who paid a woman to write a book against me in the 2018 elections. They will once again go for my character assassination after Eid. For them I have a message... I will fight against them as long as I am alive," Imran said.
