LHC accepts to hear PML-N's petition for Nawaz's unconditional travel 
The two-member bench headed by Justice Ali Baqir Najafi, and comprising of Justice Sardar Ahmad Naeem has adjourned the hearing until Monday.
During today's proceedings, the government and NAB submitted its response in the case filed by Shehbaz Sharif challenging the government's decision to conditionally allow the PML-N supremo to travel abroad for the treatment. 
In its 45-page reply, the government pleaded the court to not the remove of Nawaz’s name from ECL without a security bond, a condition imposed by the cabinet's sub-committee.  
It argued that Nawaz Sharif , who is suffering from various diseases, is convicted which is why he should not be allowed to go abroad without submitting the indemnity bond.
The petition, which was submitted by Shehbaz Sharif a day earlier, challenged the government’s conditional one-time permission to Nawaz to travel abroad for medical treatment only after submitting Rs7.5 billion surety bond.
Appearing on behalf of the federal government, Additional Attorney General Ishtiaq A Khan objected to the maintainability of the petition and requested that the petition be dismissed for being “non-maintainable”.
