Lahore High Court seeks Moonis Elahi case record from FIA.

SPECIAL Judge (banking offences) Abdul Rasheed on Monday issued notice to FIA Punjab for April 25 on a bail petition moved by PML-Q leader Moonis Elahi allegedly involved in the National Insurance Corporation Limited (NICL) land scam.

On Monday, Muhammad Iqbal Bhatti, counsel for Moonis, filed post-arrest bail application in the court. He contended that the FIA had no evidence against Moonis and he was implicated in the scam purely on political grounds. He said Moonis had nothing to do with the scam as all the cases were lodged against the family of Mohsin Habib Warriach. He pointed out that looted money had already been returned to the NICL and requested the court to release Moonis on bail. At this, the court summoned record of the case from the FIA Punjab on April 25.
