NAB said that the Sharif family got thousands of kanals of land adjacent to its Jati Umra residence declared residential area in 2014 and former Lahore Development Authority head Ahad Cheema, a blue-eyed boy of Shahbaz Sharif, played an important role in this respect. Former DCO of Lahore Noorul Amin Mengal has also been included in the investigation.
It should also be noted that Maryam Nawaz has been on bail in Chaudhry Sugar Mills case since November 2019. Nawaz Sharif has been in London since November 2019, for his medical treatment after securing bail in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills and Al-Azizia Mills corruption case, in which he was serving a seven-year sentence in Kot Lakhpat jail, Lahore.
