FIA sent notices to Jahangir Tareen and Ali Tareen on April 14.

LAHORE (Dunya News) – A Banking Court in Lahore has on Saturday extended estranged Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Tareen and his son Ali Tareen’s interim bails in fake bank accounts case till May 3.

Jahangir Tareen and Ali Tareen appeared before Judge Ameer Muhammad Khan as their counsel told the court that the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) sent notices to his clients on April 14 and summoned record of all businesses of the PTI leader including dairy farms.

The lawyer argued that it was not possible to submit all record on a day’s notice, particularly due to the law and order situation. He told the court that Jahangir Tareen and Ali Tareen will appear before the investigation agency on April 19. The court adjourned the hearing till May 3.

Jahangir Tareen talked to media afterwards outside the judicial complex and said it is unknown that who is doing his character assassination but the names will be revealed eventually. He said he has not been accused of surging the sugar prices in all three cases and stressed that baseless allegations are leveled against him.

Jahangir Tareen said he did not start his business after joining politics. I was a farmer first, then I started my business and then joined politics, he said while adding that he has a good name Pakistan and will emerge victorious from the cases.

He said FIRs are lodged against him pertaining to matters which are eight to ten years old and should have been probed by the Securities & Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP).

PTI leader Raja Riaz Ahmad, who accompanied Jahangir Tareen, gave final warning to Prime Minister Imran Khan and asked to not drag this issue any further. We are standing under the flag of PTI with great patience but will be free to make our decision if justice is not served in Riyasat-e-Madina, he stressed.
