Addressing a press conference in Sialkot, Firdous Ashiq Awan said that commission tasked with the forensic examination of the wheat, sugar inquiry report has sought three weeks’ time for submission of the thorough report.
“A total of 3 more weeks have been asked for by the investigative commission. The cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday will decide about probe body’s request for more time,” she added.
