FIA summons Jahangir Tareen, Ali Tareen in money laundering probe
ISLAMABAD: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Thursday summoned Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Khan Tareen and his son Ali Khan Tareen in a money laundering and sugar mills case.
The FIA has summoned Ali Tareen to appear on Sept 18 (tomorrow) and Jahangir Tareen on Sept 19 at its Lahore office.
The investigation agency officials would grill them on money laundering and fraud in sugar mills.
Earlier this year, the preliminary FIA report had mentioned Jahangir Tareen as one of the beneficiaries of the wheat and sugar crisis, following which Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf Chairman Imran Khan had reportedly unofficially dissociated with the South Punjab leader.
On Aug 17, the Sindh High Court had declared the Sugar Inquiry Commission and the report null and void and ordered a new independent inquiry.
The owners of more than 20 sugar mills in Sindh had challenged the formation and report of the Sugar Inquiry Commission in the High Court.
