The Shehbaz Sharif-led federal government Saturday has withdrawn the charge sheet against director general of Lahore Development Authority Ahad Khan Cheema, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday. 

The federal government notified that all pending inquiries against Ahad Khan Cheema has been dismissed.

In April last year, Ahad Cheema was released from jail after a pre-conviction incarceration spanning over three years in connection with three references filed against him by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

Pertinent to note that Cheema was the first high-profile arrest in Punjab by the NAB before the general elections of 2018. 

A BPS-19 PAS officer, Cheema was the head of the Lahore Development Authority during the last PML-N government.

Also, in recognition of his services in constructing the Lahore metro, Cheema was conferred the award of Tamgha-e-Imtiaz by the President of Pakistan.
