ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Wednesday gave a clean chit to the PML-N supremo and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif in the Toshakhana vehicles case, local media reported.

In a significant development within the Toshakhana vehicles case the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has requested for the acquittal of Nawaz Sharif in the accountability court on Wednesday.

Presenting a comprehensive report related to Nawaz Sharif’s investigation, the NAB revealed pivotal details. According to the report, Nawaz Sharif received a vehicle as a gift in 1997 during his tenure as prime minister. Subsequently, he surrendered ownership of the vehicle to Toshakhana, after which it became part of the federal transport pool.

Furthermore, the report disclosed that in 2008, Yousaf Raza Gillani, then serving as prime minister, offered Nawaz Sharif the opportunity to purchase the vehicle. Notably, Nawaz Sharif got the vehicle from the federal transport pool, rather than directly from Toshakhana, as clarified in the report.

Highlighting a critical point, the NAB emphasized that since the vehicle was not part of Toshakhana at the time of its acquisition, Nawaz Sharif should be absolved of any charges about the case.
