Fawad Hasan Fawad, former principal secretary to ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif, in his statement before NAB in August claimed that he had awarded a contract to a "favourite firm" in the Rs14bn Ashiana Housing project on Shahbaz's behest.

A leader of opposition political party Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) and a brother of Pakistan's Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Shehbaz Sharif was found guilty in connection with Rs 1,400 crore housing scam by the anti-corruption court on Saturday.

He will be kept in a highly-secured lock-up inside the NAB Lahore office until his appearance in court. But law enforcement officials confirmed to Asia Times that the NAB would ask for him to remain in police custody for two weeks while investigations continue. His private staff who accompanied him as security were also asked to leave, Dawn newspaper reported.

A heavy contingent of Rangers has been posted outside NAB Lahore.

The activists gathered at PML-N district office and marched to Karnal Sher Khan Chowk where the leaders addressed the rally. Shehbaz Sharif is arrested before [the October 14] by-elections and we have heard that Khawaja Saad Rafique is the next target. "NAB summoned him (on Friday) in Saaf Pani Company case but arrested him in the Ashiyana housing case". He has fled to the United Kingdom and the NAB has written to the interior ministry to bring him back from overseas through Interpol.

According to a news sources, the NAB administration granted "special permission" to Shehbaz Sharif's sons Hamza and Salman, Shehbaz's wife Nusrat, and elder brother Nawaz Sharif to see the National Assembly opposition leader on their request.


"Shahbaz Sharif saved billions in mega-projects".

Member National Assembly Shaheen Habibullah, Sobia Khan and Farah Khan led the protesters.

"The fashion in which Shehbaz has been arrested is tantamount to humiliating the entire parliament", said Khursheed Shah, a PPP parliamentarian and former opposition leader.

Nawaz (PMLN) chief Shehbaz Sharif on Friday was arrested by the National Accountability Bureau after being found guilty in Saaf Pani (clean water) corruption scandal.
