Maryam, Capt Safdar Appear Before Accountability Court

Protesting lawyers inside the judicial complex led the accountability court to adjourn today's hearing minutes after it began.

Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz and her husband Captain Safdar appeared before the accountability judge Mohammad Bashir in connection with the corruption references against them and other members of the Sharif family by the national accountability bureau.

Due to strict security arrangements in place, police restricted entry of people including lawyers, allowing only selected persons to enter inside the complex.

This led to a scuffle between lawyers and police.

As the hearing began, the lawyers protested inside the courtroom against the police and FC personnel.

Keeping in view the atmosphere, the judge adjourned the hearing without proceedings till 19th October.
