Captain (Retd) Safdar flew from London to imminently arrive in Pakistan. Speculations about his immediate arrest rose to height and now it has been confirmed that Captain Mohammad Safdar has been arrested as soon as he landed at the Benazir Bhutto Airport, Islamabad from London. Meanwhile, Maryam Nawaz left for her house and is set to appear in the NAB court on Monday regarding the hearing of all 3 NAB references related to the Panama case.
The news of Captain Safdar’s arrest has been the hot topic since morning. Pakistanis are glued to their televisions and smartphones to receive updates. It has not hit well with the pro-Nawaz Sharif lot as they continue to express their anger and resentment over the matter. The National Accountability Beaurue of Pakistan took immediate action against Captain Safdar and long before any proceedings, he was shackled in handcuffs. As he got arrested, the Pakistanis on Twitter were up to some quality banter!
You can’t miss how Pakistani people reacted to the news…
