NAB requests for a helicopter to transport Nawaz, Maryam to Islamabad

National Accountability Bureau Punjab has requested the anti-graft body’s chief for a helicopter to transport former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz when they return to Pakistan on Friday.

Director General NAB Punjab Saleem Shahzad on Wednesday requested for a helicopter to transport Nawaz and Maryam from the Allama Iqbal International Airport to Islamabad Airport.

The request has been made in case of a precarious situation that could take place because of agitation by Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) supporters.

Law enforcement agencies have made strict security arrangements to deal with any such situation. Security has been deployed at 14 sensitive points of the city.

Entry and exit points of Lahore will be sealed.

Authorities are considering to arrange access of a NAB team to the airplane to materialise the arrest
