An accountability court in Karachi on Thursday indicted Sharjeel Memon and 11 others in a corruption case pertaining to the award of advertisements at ‘exorbitant rates’ through the abuse of power.
The hearing was held in a sealed courtroom, where no media and non-essential personnel were allowed. All the men indicted in the case pleaded not guilty to charges of corruption.
Four of the indicted men — Asim Sikandar, Riaz Muneer, Inam Akbar and Muhammad Hanif — in an application, raised questions on the indictment.
The four men said that the documents that should have been provided to them under the law have not been handed to them.
