LAHORE: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has summoned Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice-president Maryam Nawaz today in a case related to 200 acres of land.
The case highlights allegations against the PML-N leader over illegal transfer of 200 acres of land in Jati Umra, Raiwind. Aa per the details, the workers of the PML-N will go in a convoy with Maryam Nawaz from Jati Umrah to the bureau.
She was summoned earlier on 6th August by the NAB. In 2013, 200 acres of land were transferred to her in Raiwind, while 100 acres were transferred to Shehbaz Sharif and Nawaz Sharif. According to the sources, the Lahore Development Authority (LDA) rules were completely ignored in the transfer of land.

She is required to furnish complete details regarding the sale and purchase of land as well as funds arranged for acquiring the land.
