KARACHI: The Sindh High Court (SHC) has asked lawyer of Anwar Majeed and his sons to submit till November 27 a reply stating reasons for failure of Anwar and his sons to submit their tax returns from 2011 onwards.

A two-judge SHC bench, led by Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar, on Monday heard the pleas filed by the Omni Group chief Anwar Majeed and his sons against the Federal Board of Revenue’s (FBR) notices.

Anwar and his sons are in the Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA) custody in connection with its ongoing probe into a multi-billion rupees money laundering scam that also involves the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) top leadership.

On Monday, the FBR’s counsel said notices had been issued to Anwar, AG Majeed, Namar Majeed and Ali Kamal Majeed for not paying their tax returns. However, the petitioner maintained that the FBR could not seek tax returns for over past 5 years.
