The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has rejected allegation leveled by Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) Leaders that the party president Shehbaz Sharif contracted coronavirus during his appearance before anti-graft body.
According to the details, NAB while rejecting the allegations said in its statement that all safety protocols were adopted during the PML-N leader’s appearance.
Moreover, NAB expressed reservations over Shehbaz testing positive for COVID-19 in a single night.
PML-N leaders, while addressing a press conference earlier, said Prime Minister Imran Khan and NAB would be held responsible if anything happened to Shehbaz after the party confirmed the opposition leader tested positive for COVID-19.
PML-N representative Ata Tarar said that despite informing NAB several times that Shehabaz was a cancer survivor and was at risk from COVID-19, he was summoned by the anti-graft body.
“This was a well thought out plan to put the lives of all these people [PML-N leaders] in danger,” he said, blaming the ‘NAB-Niazi nexus’ for putting Sharif at risk of contracting coronavirus.
PML-N leader Uzma Bukhari said Shehbaz Sharif came back to face everything. “Did Nawaz and Maryam Nawaz not return after the decision was taken against them,” asked Bukhari.
She added saying that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s ego had still not been satisfied.
Earlier Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa telephoned PML-N President and Leader of the Opposition Shehbaz Sharif to ask about his health.
During the telephone conversation, the Army Chief inquired from Shehbaz Sharif about his health while expressing concern over Shehbaz Sharif’s condition and Coronavirus being positive.
