Islamabad, Oct 19 : A Pakistan court on Thursday indicted former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam and son-in-law MNA Capt (retd) Safdar in the Avenfield properties case, Geo News reported.

The accountability court hearing corruption cases against the Sharif family indicted the three after dismissing their separate pleas to suspend proceedings and halt their indictment.

 

All of them have denied charges against them.

 

Nawaz also faces charges in two other references against him.

 

Sharif, through a counsel, had submitted an application praying the accountability court to halt the proceedings of the references against him till the Supreme Court decides his petitions against the NAB references.

 

Maryam Nawaz and Captain retired Safdar also filed an application before the accountability court Islamabad hearing NAB references against them, praying the court not to indict them.

 

However, the judge dismissed both pleas after which Nawaz filed another plea requesting the court to combine the three references but that too was dismissed.
