LAHORE – Lahore High Court announces verdict in bail plea of PTI MPA Sibtain Khan over allegations of corruption worth billions.
The Lahore High Court (LHC) has on Wednesday approved Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader and Member Punjab Assembly Sibtain Khan’s bail plea.
A two-member bench headed by Justice Ali Baqir Najfi conducted the hearing on Sibtain Khan’s petition in which the plaintiff had taken the stance that the allegations leveled against him by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) are baseless and false.
Sibtain Khan – Punjab Minister for Forestry Wildlife and Fisheries – maintained that he always followed the law.
Anti-corruption watchdog had arrested the PTI leader for awarding illegal contract worth billions of rupees in Chiniot in 2007 when he was serving as Punjab’s Minister for Mines and Minerals.
