Islamabad [Pakistan], October 26 (ANI): Islamabad based accountability court on Thursday issued bailable arrest warrants against ousted Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in connection with the cases related to two of his properties.

The bailable warrants were issued for the Flagship Investment case and the Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Hill Metal Establishment case, reported the Dawn.

The hearing on the Avenfield flats in London has been adjourned until November 3.

The court had indicted former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and her husband Captain Mohammad Safdar on October 19 in connection with a reference pertaining to the London-located Avenfield flats filed against them by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

Sharif was indicted separately in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Hill Metal Establishment cases.

However, all the three accused pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Sharif's sons, Hassan and Hussain Nawaz, were named co-accused in the charge sheet in the references.

Cases of disproportionate assets have been filed against Sharif, both of his sons, daughter Maryam and son-in-law retired Captain Mohammad Safdar.

The family owns Avenfield flats - 16, 16-A, 17, 17-A in Park Lane in 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. (ANI)
