  • PML-N vows legal action against NAB chief if he doesn't apologize

Before going to address the public rally in Multan during his first visit to southern Punjab's city after his ouster in July last, he told, "Militant organizations are active".

"Call them non-state actors, should we allow them to cross the border and kill over 150 people in Mumbai? Explain it to me", he asked, in a clear reference to the Mumbai killings blamed on 10 Pakistani terrorists.

What he was referring to is the stalled trial in a Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court.

A leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Saturday filed a constitutional plea against the head of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) over the money-laundering probe against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif. The story of Afghanistan was accepted, but not ours.

The official sources have warned that Sharif's words should not be misread or linked to his familiarity or friendship with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. "We must look into it".

Further, as of January 1, 2020, Walmart and Sam's Club will require e-prescriptions for controlled substances. The CDC also notes that patients who are prescribed higher dosages are more likely to die from an overdose.

Citing the military and judiciary establishment, Mr. Sharif said, "You can't run a country if you have two or three parallel governments".

On November 26, 2008, 10 Pakistani terrorists came to Mumbai via the sea route and unleashed havoc on hapless victims, a lot of them Indians, while some were Americans and Israelis, at different places - CST railway station, Taj Hotel, Trident Hotel, Leopold Cafe and Chabad House.

The relations between the military and the Sharif government were at its lowest in October 2016 when the latter told the former to act against home-grown militant groups or face worldwide isolation. Sharif asked, referring to the masterminds of the Mumbai massacre that nearly brought India and Pakistan to war.

Ajmal was tried in Indian courts and was hanged to death on November 21, 2012.

Nine of the terrorists were killed during the attack.
