ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Accountability Shahzad Akbar yesterday has said that the assets of Sharif family have significantly increased in ten years and it is impossible to deny the evidence against Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) President Mian Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif.
Briefing the media in Islamabad, Shahzad Akbar further said that Shehbaz Sharif has returned to the country and is also appearing before National Accountability Bureau (NAB) but the opposition leader is misleading the public with strange statements.

Shahzad Akbar further said that the assets of the Sharif family have increased significantly during the past 10 years. He pinned the reason for the sharp rise in assets as TTs; the poor employees who have never even gone to Karachi were sent millions of rupees.
The Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for Accountability said that the black money was sent out of the country through hawala and hundi and was brought back through TTs.
He said that the Sharifs can deny the charges all they want, but the reality is clear.
He further said that PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif said that he was not responsible for the affairs of his children yet he formed several companies in the name of his employees. He said that Rs 480 million was transferred to the account of an employee of Ramzan Sugar Mills and a company was also formed in the name of an employee of Sharif Feed Mills.
