Apex court orders Aleema Khan to pay Rs29.5 million in illegal properties case

The apex court also ordered the Federal Board of Revenue to submit a report of Aleema Khan's case after a week.

Aleema Khan has been ordered by the Supreme Court to pay a fine and tax amounting to Rs29.5million in a case for her illegal properties in Dubai and the UK.

She appeared at the court hearing with her counsel Salman Akram Raja.

Chief Justice Saqib Nisar headed a three-member bench for hearing the case that has put the Prime Minister Imran Khan in a lot of trouble.

Aleema Khan, sister of Imran Khan, was told by the court that she would have the right to appeal but her properties would be confiscated if she failed to deposit the amount.

After accusations against Aleema Khan for making illegal properties in Dubai, UK and Pakistan she got a business letter from her partner in Dubai. 

Political parties in the opposition had demanded Aleema Khan should be taken into custody for investigation and National Accountability Bureau (NAB) must arrest her as they have arrested other politicians. 

The apex court also ordered the Federal Board of Revenue to submit a report of her case after a week.
