LAHORE, (MANEND NEWS): Provincial Authorities have decided to
auction the Sheikhupura properties of former prime minister Nawaz
Sharif on May 20, 2021.
Meanwhile, the decision of Deputy Commissioner (DC) Sheikhupura to
set a date for the bidding on properties has been challenged in the
Islamabad High Court (IHC).
The petitioner Ashraf Malik has argued that he had bought 88 kanals
of land in Sheikhupura from Nawaz Sharif and also paid Rs75 million to
the former premier.
He added that due to the arrest of Nawaz Sharif, the sale deed could
not be implemented and he has also approached the civil court for the
implementation of the sale deed.
On the other hand, another petitioner named Aslam Aziz has also
challenged the decision to auction 105 acres of fruit orchards in high
court and asked the court to stop the process. The plaintiff has stated
that he eased the land an invested heavily on it. Even my initial
investment has been paid off, he added.
It is worth mentioning here that Nawaz Sharif was declared a
proclaimed offender by the court on September 9, 2020 due to his
failure to join the Toshakhana gift repository case.
