Shahbaz Sharif Tastes Prison Again

Shahbaz Tastes Prison Again

This is the second time that Shahbaz Sharif has been arrested. Firstly, he was arrested in the plane hijacking case in 1999.
Shahbaz Sharif has become the second opposition leader who faces prison after Khan Abdul Wali Khan. Khan Abdul Wali Khan was arrested in a case of assassination of PPP leader Hayat Khan Sherpao. Wali Khan was the opposition leader by then.
After Shahbaz’s non-availability, the parliamentary committee is likely to pick up his replacement. The arrest has been made just days before by-elections are due to happen in several constituencies including two federal constituencies of Lahore.
