Pakistan sugar scam: Case registered against politicians

Lahore, Pakistan: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) investigating the multibillion rupee sugar scam has registered cases against the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Tareen, his son and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif and his two sons for allegedly money laundering and other charges including fraud.

According to the local media report, FIA would soon summon federal Minister of Economic Affairs Khusro Bakhtiar and his family members in this scam as the investigation is underway.

A few months ago Pakistan witnessed a sudden sugar shortage in the country, which led to a hike in the commodity prices. The country was also forced to import sugar to meet the domestic need.
