According to a private TV channel, citing sources, the FIA investigation team asked the Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly a total of 25 questions, but he answered none.

When the investigators questioned him about his properties worth billions of rupees, he instead of replying asked them to put this question to his wives, the tv channel quoted the sources saying, and added he also skirted a question about rapid growth of his business saying his son Salman Shehbaz be asked about this question.

The FIA will submit the report to the relevant court in a day or two. A copy of the report has already been provided to the PM’s aide on accountability Shehzad Akbar. On July 10, Shehbaz accused the FIA probe team of harassment and misbehaviour during his appearance before it.

“I was called to the FIA office where the investigators misbehaved with me,” he alleged. “They talked with me inappropriately and when I stopped them, they mocked me.”
