Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) senior leader Jahangir Khan Tareen said on Tuesday that “ridiculous attempts” were being made on the electronic media to malign his sugar mills.

In a tweet on Tuesday, Tareen said that sugar millers could not be held responsible for the actions of dealers who simply buy the commodity from sugar mills and take it wherever they want to. He wrote, “Ridiculous attempt to malign the name of JDW Sugar Mills on multiple TV channels alleging JDW Sugar Mills sugar being “caught” We sell sugar to dealers. Once they lift sugar from our mills after payment, it is their Sugar, not ours and we have no control over where they take it.”

Tareen is currently living in the United Kingdom. He left Pakistan a couple of months ago after an inquiry commission found him and some other political bigwigs involved in the sugar crisis in the country.
