The Accountability Court in Islamabad on Wednesday extended former chief minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif 's transit remand till November 6 in the Ashiana Housing scheme case.

The Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president was produced before Judge Mohammad Bashir today by the National Accountability Bureau.

The NAB team sought a seven-day extension in Shehbaz’s transit remand, which was granted by the court.

Shehbaz was arrested on October 5 in the Ashiana Iqbal Housing Scheme case after he appeared before NAB in the Saaf Pani case. 

He was already on transit remand, which was to expire today before the court extended it by seven days.
