LAHORE: Salman Shahbaz and Hamza Shahbaz, sons of former Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, on Tuesday didn’t appear before the Combined Investigation Team of National Accountability Bureau in an inquiry related to Ramzan Sugar Mills.

The bureau had summoned Salman and Hamza in an inquiry regarding construction of a bridge in Chiniot which allegedly facilitated Ramzan Sugar Mills owned by the Shahbaz family. The NAB claimed that Rs200 million were paid from the national kitty and Shahbaz Sharif allegedly illegally ordered the construction of the bridge.

However, both brothers didn’t appear before the bureau. Salman is reportedly aboard while Hamza is out of the city. It has been learnt that a director of Raamzan Sugar Mills has also been summoned by the NAB for today.
