FIA files money laundering case against Moonis Elahi

The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has filed a money laundering case against the leader of the Pakistan Muslim League Quaid (PML-Q) and former Federal Minister Moonis Elahi.

According to media reports, the case has been filed by the Lahore chapter of FIA and the case pertains to alleged money laundering. Apart from Moonis Elahi, FIA also filed a money laundering case against Nawaz Bhatti, nephew of Muhammad Khan Bhatti, the secretary of Punjab Assembly, and Mazhar Iqbal, a peon at RYK Sugar Mills.

The reports further stated that both Nawaz Bhatti and Mazhar Iqbal have been arrested by the FIA. The development follows reports earlier this week that the FIA had decided to move against Moonis Elahi.

The PML-Q’s leader Moonis Elahi has responded to the development and took to his official Twitter account and wrote “Bismillah” while sharing a screenshot of the news.

It is pertinent to mention here that the former Prime Minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan had tasked the FIA to investigate the sugar crisis throughout the country and find out who benefited from it.
