The former Prime Minister of Pakistan Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has been taken under arrest by NAB.
The National Accountability Bureau’s Lahore and Rawalpindi chapters detained the politician while en-route on Thokar Niaz Baig road.
Arrest warrants for the politicians arrest had been issued prior by Chairman NAB Justice retd. Javed Iqbal.
Abbasi was summoned today for an appearance in regard to the ongoing LNG corruption case against him.
Failure to appear resulted in the action which lead to his arrest.
NAB had summoned Abbasi for investigations on four different occasions but he kept ignoring the calls for appearance.
