Pakistan's anti-graft body today arrested opposition leader and PML-N chief Shahbaz Sharif in another corruption case and had his physical remand extended till November 24.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had taken Shahbaz Sharif, Opposition Leader in the National Assembly and younger brother of ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif, into custody on October 5 in the 14 billion rupees Ashiana-i-Iqbal housing project scam.

Shahbaz was produced before an accountability court in Lahore for a hearing in the Ashiana scam and the NAB requested extension to his remand for another 15 days. It informed the court that it had also arrested Shahbaz in the Ramzan Sugar Mills case.

Shahbaz's counsel opposed further extension in the physical remand saying his client had been in NAB custody for more than a month and it could not prove anything against him.

NAB prosecutor said, the body could not interrogate Shahbaz properly as he attended the National Assembly session during the remand period. After hearing the arguments, the court extended 14-day remand of Shahbaz in NAB custody till November 24.
Several PML-N workers gathered outside the court and chanted slogans against the Imran Khan government and NAB.
