Pakistan's accountability bureau has decided to put the names of Opposition Leader Shehbaz Sharif's two sons on the no-fly list. They have submitted a request to the interior ministry. Hamza and Salman should be stopped from travelling abroad, the NAB said. Shehbaz Sharif is currently in NAB's custody for involvement in the Ashiana Housing scam. On October 10, the bureau grilled Salman for owning assets beyond his income. He appeared before the bureau’s Lahore office. A three-member team investigated him for 1.5 hours.
