Inquiry initiated against Jahangir Khan Tareen

A Joint Investigation Team has initiated investigations against PTI’s senior leader Jahangir Khan Tareen, 24News TV reported Wednesday.

Notices have been issued in this regard to all the companies in which Tareen is a shareholder.

All the companies have been asked to pride details regarding their income and have been asked to provide all the details in 14 days.

The officials from the Security Exchange Commission of Pakistan and the Federal Investigation Agency are also part of the JIT.

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.

After findings of the inquiry commission, cracks started appearing in the relationship between Tareen and Prime Minister Imran Khan. 

However, Tareen said this week that he feels sorry for the cracks that appeared in his relationship with Khan, but he was hopeful that these cracks would disappear soon. Talking to a private news channel, Tareen said he was happy to hear prime minister’s views about him during a recent TV interview. 

Prime Minister Imran Khan had said during an interview to a news channel on August 18 that Tareen had not committed any crime and that it was sad to hear that Tareen’s name surfaced during an inquiry into the sugar crisis.  

Tareen said that Khan’s latest remarks about him dispelled the impression that he had forgotten his old friend. He said that Khan’s remarks during the TV interview showed he had not forgotten his old friend. He said it was Khan’s greatness that he did not forget him.
