Shahbaz bail plea: LHC rejects NAB petition for change of bench



The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday rejected National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) plea for a change of bench hearing Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Shahbaz Sharif’s bail petitions. LHC Chief Justice Sardar Mehmood Shamim Khan heard NAB’s plea. The LHC chief justice first reserved the decision and then later while announcing a short verdict rejected NAB’s plea.
In its plea, the accountability watchdog had stated, “A two-judge bench headed by Justice Malik Shehaz is hearing Shahbaz’s petitions and they should be transferred to a bench headed by Justice Ali Baqar Najfi.”—INP
