An accountability court on Thursday issued bailable warrants against ousted Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in cases relating to two of his properties, the media reported. A day after, the ex-PM had also been indicted in two other references regarding Al-Azizia Steel Mills and other companies.

Giving the example of Pakistan Peoples Party leader Sharjeel Memon's comments on his arrest that Nawaz's son-in-law is given bail by a trial court but he isn't, Chaudhry commented that a commoner feels that the Sharif family is given preferential treatment after hearing such things.

NAB has filed three references against Nawaz Sharif and his children.

"The accountability court issued bailable warrants for the former prime minister in two cases of alleged corruption today and adjourned (the) hearing until November 3", one of his defence lawyers, Zafir Khan told AFP.

The former premier is now out of country, had skipped the court proceedings. Through the pleader, Nawaz pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The petition was filed through ex-PM Sharif's legal team, stating that filling multiple references on a single allegation, possessing assets beyond known sources of income, is the sheer breach of Section 9 (a) (5) of the National Accountability Ordinance (NAO).

Captain Safdar arrived before Maryam, who made her way to the court directly after arriving in Islamabad from Lahore.

Earlier, the NAB had written letters to United Kingdom authorities, in connection with a mutual legal agreement, seeking details of the Sharif family's Avenfield flats 16, 16-A, 17 and 17-A, Avenfield House and Park Lane, London.

The Pakistan Supreme Court had asked the NAB to file four references against the Sharif family in connection with their Avenfield and other properties on July 28.

The former Prime Minister was separately indicted in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Hill Metal Establishment cases.
