A three-judge SC bench, consisting of Justice Umar Ata Bandial, Justice Sajjad Ali Shah, and Justice Yahya Afridi, has given a notice to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), demanding full information of the case.

Senior counsel Makhdoom Ali Khan pleaded in court that his firm, Shell Petroleum, was being pulled into criminal action unnecessarily because it supplied jet fuel to Aero Lube.

The related laws drafted by the federal government do not prohibit such transactions, according to the lawyer.
