Pakpattan: The Supreme Court will hear Pakpattan shrine land case against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
Supreme Court on December 13 ordered a new Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to investigate the illegal transfer of a piece of land that belonged to the Auqaf department in Punjab’s Pakpattan district. At that time, Nawaz Sharif was the chief minister of Punjab.
Chief Nacta rejected on December 27 to lead a JIT to investigate into the former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s role in the illegal transfer of 14,394 kanals of Auqaf land, almost 30 years back during his reign.
Khalid mentioned his personal reasons for his inability to undertake the key risks.
“Khaliq Dad’s excuse is based on the truth. He can’t be forced. The Supreme Court bench is satisfied with him,” Justice Nisar commented while accepting his request.
According to the previous hearing on Dec 13, the documents and proves available on record revealed that Nawaz Sharif in his capacity as CM Punjab allocated the land back then, but now he has refused to accept the fact and he says he doesn’t remember doing this.
