LAHORE: Special Assistant to PM on Accountability Shahzad Akbar has claimed that PML-N leaders have occupied 839 kanals of government land.

Addressing a press conference on Friday he claimed that the Sharif family’s house in Jati Umra is built on it. Public land cannot be transferred in anyone else’s name, he said.

The majority of the people to whom the land was transferred have sold it to the Sharif family, he added.

Shehzad Akbar said that the real name of Jati Umra is Mouza Manak.

Special Assistant to PM said that an attempt was being made to create a sensation since yesterday.

He said that lands were transferred in 1989, 1992 and 1994, the whole system has been computerized, all transfers turned out to be fake.

On Thursday, a civil court maintained status quo on Jati Umra residence of the Sharif family in a suit accusing the Punjab government of forging the revenue record to disturb the property’s ownership.

Yousaf Abbas and three other children of Abbas Sharif, the late brother of former PM Nawaz Sharif, had filed a suit seeking a declaration in their favour as lawful owners in possession of the property being legal heirs of the late Shamim Akhtar, the grandmother of the applicants.

The suit states that the applicants and pro forma defendants are the legal heirs of Shamim Akhtar, wife of Mian Muhammad Sharif.

Ms Akhtar was the owner of the property measuring 241 kanals and 10 marlas in the revenue estate of Manak, tehsil Raiwind, through two registered sale deeds materialised in 1993 and 1996.
