    The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Thursday granted protective bail to Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s son-in-law Haroon Yousaf Aziz.

    A two-member bench of the IHC, comprising Chief Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Sardar Ejaz Ishaq Khan, heard a petition filed by Aziz’s counsel in the assets beyond means case.

    It may be noted that Aziz was amongst several other accused alongside PM Shehbaz standing trial in the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) reference of money laundering involving a sum of over Rs7 billion.—INP
