Islamabad /Lahore, Mar 15(ANI): Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik has sued Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) Punjab President Shahbaz Sharif over claims that the former took 500 million rupees from the Intelligence Bureau.
Malik has directed his legal team to send notices to PML-N, claiming damages worth 10 billion rupees, The Express Tribune reports.
A spokesperson said that Malik never withdrew any money from IB account, as he is not authorised to do so because the administrative, financial and operational control does not come under the control of Pakistan Interior Ministry.
Sharif had earlier alleged the Intelligence Bureau was also involved in the money distribution scams and added he would disclose the names of those who had taken money from IB if he was told to appear before the Pakistan Supreme Court.
Sharif said that he and party president Nawaz Sharif would take the legal action against main character in the MehranGate scam, Younis Habib, over claims of giving hefty amounts to the two brothers.
He also blamed Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari for defaming the Sharif brothers over baseless allegations.
Sharif said that notices to Habib under the defamation act were being prepared, which would be issued before moving to court.
"I'll in the coming days divulge the perpetrators who are engaged in taking Habib to Supreme Court and asked him to nominate Sharifs in fake cases," he said. (ANI)
