Additional Sessions Judge Hamid Hussain heard the interim bail of Jahangir Tareen and Ali Tareen.
The PTI leader along with his son appeared before the court.
The judge asked the FIA officer about the status of the inquiry. “The investigation was ongoing and we were reviewing the record,” the FIA officer replied.

While talking to media outside the court, Jahangir Khan Tareen said that he and other members of his group were part of the PTI, and would remain so.
He claimed that he had given a complete money trail to Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) in his cases. “There is no mention of the word ‘sugar’ in the three FIRs registered against me,” he further claimed.
He added his lawyers had a detailed discussion with Barrister Ali Zafar, and hopefully he would come up with a report on his cases soon.
Calling Prime Minister Imran Khan the man who believed in justice, Tareen hoped that justice would be done to him in his cases too.
