Capt Safdar held by NAB on return from London


KARACHI: Retired Captain Muhammad Safdar was taken into custody by a team of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) minutes after he landed at Benazir Bhutto International Airport along with his wife Maryam Nawaz from London in the early hours of Monday morning.

The son-in-law of the ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his wife had arrived to appear before the Islamabad accountability court in connection with a reference filed by NAB as required by the Supreme Court’s verdict in the Panama Papers case, TV channels reported.

The NAB authorities had to seek help of the Islamabad police when the charged workers of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-N lay down in front of the NAB vehicle carrying Capt Safdar.
