A banking court extended the interim bail granted to Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Tareen and his son Ali Tareen and 2 other accused in a money laundering case, The banking court extended their interim pre-arrest bail until April 10 due to the absence of judge Ameer Muhammad Khan.
Jahangir Tareen while speaking to the media said that “Not 1 or 2 but 3 FIRs have been registered against me.” “My question is the same from day one that there are over 80 sugar mills in Pakistan, why am I being singled out?”
The PTI leader further asked that “I am compelled to ask why I am being subjected to this vindictive action?” added that “My loyalty [to the party] is being tested.” “I have been facing the sugar commission for the past 1 year and have kept my mouth shut all along,” Tareen said
Jahangir Tareen also demanded that those behind the vengeful action against him be exposed, “ The Prime Minister Imran Khan can expose these elements,”
He also slammed what he called, his “media trial” asking if the cases against him are too weak to stand in a court of law that scorn is being poured on him in the media, He was of the view that the PTI will also suffer if he part ways with it, However, he cleared, that he is and will remain a part of the PTI.
While referring to rumours suggesting that he is joining the PPP, Tareen said that “I don’t intend to meet [PPP co-chairman Asif Ali] Zardari,” he stated in clear terms that “There is no truth in such talk,”
