AC allows JIT to probe Nawaz in Kot Lakhpat Jail

By Obaid Abrar Khan

ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif will face another Joint Investigation Team (JIT) in Kot Lakhpat Jail, as accountability court, Islamabad on Thursday granted JIT on Model Town incident to interrogate him.

Deputy Superintendent of Punjab Police Muhammad Iqbal on Thursday moved an application before accountability court judge Arshad Malik seeking his permission to interrogate under prison former PM Nawaz Sharif in Kot lakhpat Jail, regarding the Model Town incident.

Former PM Nawaz Sharif is currently serving his 7-year sentence in Al-Azizia reference in Kot Lakhpat jail.

During hearing, DSP Muhammad Iqbal requested the court to allow JIT to interrogate former PM Nawaz Sharif, as he has also been nominated as accused in Model Town incident in 2014.

To this, National Accountability Bureau Prosecutor Mirza Usman opposed the JIT's application and said instead of approaching accountability court, investigation officer should approach the Islamabad High Court (IHC) to seek such permission.

Accountability Court Judge Arshad Malik allowed DSP Muhammad Iqbal to interrogate former PM Nawaz Sharif in Kot Lakhpat Jail.
