The Lahore High Court has dismissed bail plea of Pakistan Muslim League N leader Hamza Shahbaz in assets beyond income, money laundering case.

As per details, the bench headed by Justice Mazahir Naqvi conducted the hearing of assets beyond income, money laundering case against Hamza Shahbaz.

Earlier The Lahore High Court (LHC) granted post-arrest bail to Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Hamza Shabaz in the Ramzan Sugar Mills case.

A two-member bench, headed by Justice Mazahar Ali Akbar Naqvi, approved the petition, seeking bail for the detained Punjab Assembly opposition leader.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB), in February last year, had filed a reference against PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif, alleging the former Punjab chief minister misused his authority and got constructed a 10-km sludge carrier in district Chiniot to facilitate Ramzan Sugar Mills, reportedly owned by his sons.

The bureau had also alleged that the step inflicted a loss of Rs213 million to the national exchequer.

He arrested in two cases–the Ramzan Sugar Mill case and money laundering case.

His bail petition in the second case will be heard on February 11.

In the Ramzan Sugar Mill, Hamza and his father Shehbaz Sharif, the then Punjab chief minister, accused of making a drain in Chiniot which benefitted the sugar mill.
