KARACHI Federal Anti-Corruption Court on Saturday framed charges against former Chairman Pakistan Steel Mills Moin Aftab Sheikh along with 10 other accused in a corruption case. Judge Shaukat Ali Memon framed the charges against the accused in the corruption case. However, the accused denied them, saying they were not involved in corruption. The court directed the prosecution to produce the witnesses in the next hearing to be held on June 24. Meanwhile, considering due negligence of investigation officer over producing the final challan, the court converted the interim challan against the accused in four cases as final.
