Security beefed up in Islamabad, Rawalpindi ahead of verdicts against Nawaz Sharif

LAHORE (DNA) – Security has been beefed up in Islamabad and Rawalpindi ahead of announcement of verdicts by the accountability court on December 24 in two references Al-Azizia and Flagship filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) against former premier Nawaz Sharif.

Reportedly, enhanced security plan includes deployment of heavy contingent of security forces including rangers and 1,000 police officers, particularly around the accountability court’s premises in Islamabad to curb a possible resistance by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s supporters.

Moreover, only Sharif and his lawyers will be allowed to enter the court room.
