She now has to submit a tax of Rs22.1 million for concealing properties in Dubai which Aleema had requested the chairman of the revenue board to break down the sum into installments.

In an affidavit submitted to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), Aleema had claimed that she owned a property — namely Lofts East 1406 — in Dubai and that it was paid from the funds generated from her business dealings overseas.

According to prime minister’s sister, she purchased the property worth $370,000 in 2008 with 50 per cent bank mortgage but sold it out in 2017.
