D&SJ to hear Moonis’ case


Lahore District and Sessions Judge (D&SJ) Mujahid Mustaqeem shall commence the hearing of National Insurance Corporation Limited (NICL) scam against Moonis Elahi and others today (Tuesday). Earlier, presiding officer Malik Abdul Rasheed, in the court of special judge (banking offence) (central), had refused to hear the case and had requested the Lahore High Court (LHC) chief justice (CJ) to assign it to another court. The LHC CJ had hence assigned the case to Mustaqeem who was on a leave and resumed his court work on Monday. Moonis Elahi, his manager Muhammad Maalik, Rizwan Bhatti and Muhammad Khalil were involved in misappropriating Rs 220 million to facilitate one of the land deals in the NILC scam.
