Shehbaz decries 'discrimination' after Abbasi's sentencing

LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif has criticised the sentencing of party leader Hanif Abbasi in ephedrine quota case, saying that it "clearly shows a discriminatory attitude towards [the] PML-N."

A special anti-narcotics court sentenced Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hanif Abbasi to life in ephedrine quota case late Saturday, just four days before the general election in the country.

A former MNA from Rawalpindi, Abbasi was expected to have a tough electoral contest on July 25 with Sheikh Rasheed — who is allied with the PML-N's arch-rival, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf — in National Assembly constituency NA-60 Rawalpindi.

Reacting to the court verdict, Shehbaz said, "The timing and manner of judgement of Hanif Abbasi clearly shows a discriminatory attitude towards PML-N, targeting our party on the eve of the polls, when PML-N is on the verge of winning the polls."
