NAB arrests former PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi in LNG case

 

Former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was arrested by a 12-member National Accountability Bureau (NAB) team on Thursday in a multi-billion-rupee case related to the award of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) import contract.

According to DawnNewsTV, Abbasi was on his way to attend a press conference, accompanied by PML-N leader Ahsan Iqbal and spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb, when he was arrested on the Thokar Niaz Beg interchange.

Abbasi initially resisted the arrest but eventually conceded. He has been shifted to NAB lock-up in Lahore.
