The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) plans to file a supplementary reference against Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, the former prime minister in the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) case.

Judge Mohammad Azam Khan resumed hearing of the reference against Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and others.

Khaqan Abbasi, Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) officers Saeed Ahmed Khan, Uzma Adil Khan and other suspects appeared before the court.

During the hearing, Khaqan Abbasi’s lawyer inquired when the anti-graft watchdog will file the final reference against the PML-N leader.

The NAB prosecution informed the court that record pertaining to the reference could not be shifted from Karachi and a supplementary reference, in this case, is being readied which will be filed soon.

The court had adjourned the hearing till June 11.
