The Peshawar High Court (PHC) on Thursday restrained the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) from arresting former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law Capt (r) Safdar without warrants, media reports said. The order came on a petition filed by Safdar, who approached the high court fearing his arrest by the corruption watchdog in a case pertaining to accumulation of assets beyond known sources of income. The petitioner’s counsel contended before the court that the NAB could arrest his client in an inquiry being carried out against him. “NAB summons in one case but arrests in another case,” he said in reference to Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif’s arrest inside the NAB Lahore office in the Ashiana Iqbal housing case as he was summoned for questioning in another graft case.
