ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf wrote a letter to Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry on Friday, requesting him to form a judicial commission to probe the rental power case, Express News reported Friday.
The prime minister requested the chief justice to form a commission under former police official Shoaib Suddle to investigate the matter.
Ashraf further said that, “This [case] is a propaganda against me. I have put myself forward for investigations.”
PM Ashraf was given the title of 'Raja Rental' after he was accused of receiving kickbacks in the rental power projects.
He was also accused of buying property in London from money earned through corruption in various scams.
He has been defending himself in the Supreme Court.
