Sharif has been in the National Accountability Bureau's custody since October 5 in another case of alleged corruption related to the Ashiana Iqbal Housing Scheme.
According to Waqarm, there were accusations that Sharif, during his tenure as head of the government of Punjab province, "used public funds to benefit Ramzan Sugar Mills, which belongs to his family".
Meanwhile, the NAB was granted a further 14-day extension in the physical remand of the PML-N President in the Ashiana Iqbal Housing Scheme case.
It said that he had "misused his powers" and granted contracts to unqualified companies of his friends, causing "losses of millions of rupees to the national exchequer".
However, Shehbaz Sharif has denied the allegations as "false and baseless".
