The Accountability Court on Monday granted a one-day transit remand of Opposition Leader Shehbaz Sharif to attend the National Assembly session.

Earlier, Prosecutor Waris Januja had submitted a request on behalf of the jail superintendent for Shehbaz's transit remand. The plea stated that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president has to be flown to Islamabad to attend the NA session scheduled for today.

Approving the jail superintendent's request, the court granted one-day transit remand of the PML-N president.

Earlier, National Assembly speaker Asad Qaiser issued order for production of Shehbaz for a fourth time to allow him to attend the session.

Shehbaz, who was arrested on October 5 in connection to the Ashiana Iqbal Housing Scheme case, was sent to the Kot Lakhpat jail on judicial remand on Thursday after an accountability court in Lahore dismissed NAB's request for a further extension in his physical remand.
