Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has been accused of illegally allotting the land of a religious shrine in Punjab province  by Joint Investigation Team (JIT) set up by the Supreme Court.

The JIT recommended the retrieval of land and criminal proceedings against Sharif, then secretary to Chief Minister Syed Javed Iqbal Bukhari, the legal heirs of the person to whom the land was allotted, and others in the case. The team presented its report to the bench headed by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar.

The JIT was constituted by the apex court last year to probe the transfer of land of the shrine of Hazrat Baba Farid Ganj Shakar in Pakpattan in 1986 when Sharif was Chief Minister of Punjab.
 
Sharif is already in jail serving a 10-year sentence in a corruption case. He was disqualified as premier by the Supreme Court in the Panama Papers case in July 2017.
