Crackdown on PML-N continues as ex-PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi arrested in Lahore


LAHORE: Former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has been arrested by NAB from Lahore Toll Plaza here on Thursday. 

The PML-N leader has been summoned today by NAB in the LNG case. However, he had decided not to appear before the court and was heading to Lahore to join PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif’s press conference scheduled for today.

PML-leader Ahsan Iqbal has confirmed the arrest of Abbasi.

Strongly condemning the arrest, PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif has termed the NAB action as political vendetta.
