A report in The News claimed that the investigations have exonerated the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif of the charges but found his sons Hussain and Hassan guilty of failing to establish the money trail.

The Joint Investigation Team (JIT) constituted by Pakistan's Supreme Court to probe into corruption allegations against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's family handed over its reports to the court on Monday.

He let it be known while addressing a press conference following the probe committee report in Supreme Court. A case was made by the government of slain Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto against Nawaz Sharif but it was not pursued when Mr.Sharif returned to power in 1997. They faced accountability many times, including during the Pervez Musharraf era, but nothing could be proved against them, he added.

The report said that there was a "significant gap/disparity" between the declared sources of income and wealth accumulated by Sharif, his sons Hassan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz and his daughter Maryam Nawaz.

"The JIT's report is dharna number three and it too is bound to fail like the previous two", he said, adding that his party's lawyers were analyzing the report from every angle.

Zafarullah Khan, another close aide of Sharif, said, "It is a Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf report and not JIT report.It is Imran Nama". We fail to understand as to what stopped the JIT to visit the palace and record the statement.

According to JIT the Sharif family presented forged documents which have been proven fake by the British authorities.

The court ordered that its copies should be provided to the parties in the case, including Sharif family.

Defense Minister Khawaja Asif, on the other hand, termed the report "inconclusive" and a "source-based report" which has no worth before a court of law.

The six-member JIT included Federal Investigation Agency's additional director general Wajid Zia, Military Intelligence's Brig Kamran Khurshid, NAB's director Irfan Naeem Mangi, State Bank of Pakistan's Amer Aziz, Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan's executive director Bilal Rasool and Inter-Services Intelligence's Brig Muhammad Nauman Saeed.
