LAHORE (Web Desk) – Sharif family has announced to take Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Chief Dr. Tahir-Ul-Qadri to court over defamation terming the allegations regarding Indian workers as baseless.

Managing Director Sharif Group of Industries Yousuf Abbas Sharif said he will take legal action over Dr. Qadri’s invalid accusations regarding presence of Indian workers in sugar mills related with Sharif family.

Abbas clarified there is not a single Indian national working in the sugar mills owned by Sharif family, adding the mill was established in 1992 with workforce of over 1100 people. He went on to say that no foreigner worked in Sharif owned sugar mills.

He said, “Tahirul Qadri is an established liar. We are sending him defamation notice. We will take PAT chief to the court.”

Earlier, PAT supremo Dr. Tahir Ul Qadri presented documents allegedly revealing the details of Indians working in sugar mills owned by the Sharif brothers.

“They are part of some 300 Indians working in the sugar mills on a police reporting-free, multiple-entry visas,” Qadri told reporters at the PAT Model Town secretariat.

He said these Indians were issued visas on letterheads issued by the sugar mills owned by the Sharifs, adding that the Pakistan High Commission in Delhi was instructed to give these Indians visas that exempt them from reporting to the police.
