LAHORE: An accountability court Thursday extended judicial remand of Opposition leader in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shahbaz until December 20, an accused in Ramzan Sugar Mills case.

Hamza wasn’t produced before the court due to lawyers’ strike and security issues. In the reference, the NAB has blamed Hamza Shahbaz for his alleged role being the chief executive of the Ramzan Sugar Mills to get constructed a drain facilitating his mill out of the public money in Chiniot.

The then chief minister Shahbaz Sharif allegedly approved an amount of Rs210 million for the construction of the drain. It has also been learnt that the NAB could file another reference against Hamza and Shahbaz related to the construction of a bridge to allegedly facilitate the Ramzan Sugar Mills. Earlier, the NAB had grilled Salman Shahbaz, but he went to the United Kingdom and never returned to join investigations.
