*LAHORE - **Former PM Nawaz Sharif grilled inside Kot Lakhpat Jail Lahore by Punjab Anti-Corruption Department investigation team. *

*A team of Punjab Anti-Corruption Department officials questioned on Tuesday former prime minister Nawaz Sharif pertaining to the Pakpattan shrine land case.*

The case pertains to the allotment of 14,000-kanal land, attached with the shrine of Hazrat Baba Fariduddin Ganjshakar, to a man named Dewan Ghulam Qutabuddin and his 20 relatives. Nawaz allotted the land in 1982, when he was the chief minister of Punjab.

Nawaz, who has thrice been the prime minister of Pakistan, is currently incarcerated at Kot Lakhpat prison in Lahore. He was sentenced to seven years in prison after being convicted by an accountability court in the Al Azizia Steel Mills case.

The officials met Nawaz at the prison and questioned him about the allotment of the land.

The three-member team comprised Assistant Director Investigation Ghazanfar Tufail, Assistant Director Legal Rashid Maqbool and Inspector Zahid.
