An accountability court in Lahore Monday granted the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) 13-day physical remand of Sharif Group of Companies Chief Finance Officer (CFO), Muhammad Usman, till August 16 and ordered to produce him again on 17 August, 24NewsHD TV channel reported.

Usman was produced before the court while Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) Ata Muhammad Tarrar was accused’s advocate.

Ata Muhammad Tarrar talking to media said: “Muhammad Usman was not arrested on the first night. He was arrested after the news broke in the media. Anyone who is associated with any company of Sharif family is treated in such a manner.”

He said NAB’s arrest of the Sharif Group’s CFO Usman shows that it has become a tool in the hands of Imran Khan.

He accused that investigations have been closed in Prime Minister’s aide Zulfi Bukhari of offshore companies.

“Sharif family, Muslim League Nawaz is a target of the NAB as Muhammad Usman was arrested in front of his family and was handcuffed. He is not in politics,” Tarrar said.

It is pertinent to note that NAB arrested the chief financial officer of the Sharif Group of Companies in Lahore on Sunday in connection with a money laundering case against the Sharif family.

NAB had asked the Sharif Group CFO to provide the record of Ramzan Sugar Mills and other companies owned by the Sharif family and later he was arrested for not cooperating with the anti-graft body.
