Mehrangate: Nawaz Sharif too took Rs 50 million

AG presents interior ministry report which says Nawaz Sharif took Rs 50 million from Mehran bank.

Three-member Supreme Court bench headed by the CJP Iftikhar Mohammed Chaudhry heard the Mehrangate scam case. AG Irfan Qadir informed the court that he had met the interior and law ministry officials but could not get hold of Mehran Bank Commission reports.

Asghar Khan’s lawyer Salman Akram Raja said that one of the journalists told him he has got the reports. CJP wondered as to why the government hasn’t got the reports.

The AGP presented the interior ministry report which said Yunis Habib misused the money and Nawaz Sharif also got Rs 50 million. The report recommended calling the then additional DG FIA Rehman Malik AG Qazi Jamil and registrar Supreme Court. The report also recommended to hand over ex DG ISI’s original statement to registrar Supreme Court as it also could go missing.
