Lahore : A local civil court today heard an application of Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif filed for Rs. 10 billion as compensation against PTI Chairman Imran Khan on leveling baseless allegation of offering billions of rupees in Panama Papers.
No reply was submitted by Imran Khan in the court, upon which, the court again issued a legal notice to Imran Khan and sought reply by September 25.
