Karachi: The Sindh High Court declared on Monday that the report of the Sugar Investigation Committee was invalid.
While accepting the request of the sugar factory owner, SHC ordered the government to investigate the sugar factory, but the commissioned report should not affect the investigation.
What needs to be mentioned here is that the Sugar Industry Investigation Committee claims that the sugar factories belong to the family of the country’s top politicians, including PML-N’s Shehbaz Sharif, PTI’s Jahangir Tareen and Khusro Bakhtiar, PML-Q’s Moonis Elahi and PPP’s Asif Ali Zardari. The beneficiaries of the crisis.
In a legal report issued on May 21, the committee accused sugar mill owners of making unreasonable price increases, benami transactions, tax evasion, abusing subsidies, and buying sugar cane from their account books to make billions of rupees in illegal profits.
In order to prevent the government from taking action, the owner of the sugar factory appealed to the Sindh High Court, which prevented the federal government from taking action against the owner of the sugar factory.
Later, the federal government filed a challenge with the Supreme Court (SC) to challenge the Sindh High Court (SHC) order. The SC rejected the suspension order granted by the SHC and allowed the government to take action against the sugar factory.
The Supreme Court gave the Supreme Court three weeks to make a judgment on the matter. The Standards Committee also instructed the government not to take unnecessary measures against sugar factories.
