Lahore court dismisses bail plea of Moonis Elahi


A Special Central Court in Lahore on Wednesday dismissed the pre-arrest bail plea of former federal minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Q leader Moonis Elahi in money laundering case.

The Special Central Court returned the PML-Q leader’s petition with objections that the petitioner has not approached the forum concerned.

Moonis, son of Punjab Assembly Speaker Pervaiz Elahi, had approached court after Federal Investigation Agency registered a case against him in money-laundering inquiry.

The PML-Q stalwart is accused of making properties abroad by allegedly sending money through Hundi and Hawala, the FIA said.
