Nawaz Sharif appear in the NAB court Islamabad


Disqualified prime minister Nawaz Sharif  arrives to appear before a National Accountability Bureau (NAB) court in connection with the three corruption references. The proceedings lasted for only a few minutes after the former premier was allowed to leave. Sharif reportedly informed the NAB court that his wife was not well and he needed to attend to her, following which Sharif was granted permission to leave. The NAB court then adjourned for 10 minutes before continuing with the normal case proceedings. Sharif is likely to be indicted on October 2 in connection with three corruption cases, local media reported. Photography by Mian Khursheed
