LAHORE: Former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif’s family has still not returned the questionnaires to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in which they had to respond to the graft buster’s queries in a money laundering case.
The anti-corruption watchdog had summoned the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president’s wife Nusrat Shehbaz Sharif on April 17 and his daughters -- Rabia Imran and Javeria Ali -- on April 18 and April 19, respectively.
The bureau’s decision to summon the family generated a lot of criticism from the opposition parties that termed the move “an insult to women”.

NAB Chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal then ordered the cancellation of the call-up notices issued to the Sharif family women and decided to send questionnaires only.
The family had to submit the questionnaires in five days, but have not done so yet.
NAB has asked them about the sources, details and purpose of all ‘foreign remittances’ received by them, the sources of funds for acquisition and the increase in their assets during 2008-17.
It has inquired about the details of the year-wise investment (equity and director’s loans) in all the companies and businesses and details of gifts and salaries received since 2008, including the particulars of the persons from or to whom gifts were received and given and the companies from where salaries were taken.
NAB has also asked Nusrat about the sources of funds through which she acquired House No 96-H Model Town, 87-H Model Town Lahore and Nishat Lodge at Dunga Gali in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.
