Islamabad: The joint investigation team (JIT) investigating the Pakpattan shrine land case against deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif held him responsible for “illegally transferring” shrine land during his CM regime in 1985.
On December 13, the top court set up a JIT to probe the illegal transfer of 14,394 kanals of land that belonged to the Auqaf department in Pakpattan district.
The top court has urged a response from the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) supremo and the Punjab government within two weeks.
During the hearing, Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar interrogated that who allotted the shrine land “illegally.” In reply, the JIT named former Punjab chief minister “Nawaz Sharif” as the culprit.
“No one will be spared once investigation into the matter was conducted,” remarked the CJP.
JIT further said that according to court’s initial preparation Nawaz was kept responsible for the transfer of the land.
