The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has summoned the Chaudhry cousins yet again on Thursday over allegations of owning assets beyond their known sources of income.

According to the sources, a number of shares have surfaced in various companies under the name of Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid-e-Azam (PML-Q) leaders Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain, his cousin Chaudhry Pervez Elahi and their family.

Other than the shares, details of transactions of huge amount to different banks under their names have also emerged.

NAB sources said the Chaudhry cousins have failed to submit a verified details of their assets.

If they do not submit the required records, NAB would initiate an inquiry against them under Schedule 2.

However, the PML-Q leaders have recorded their statements to NAB earlier. They appeared before a three-member NAB team in 2017 in a probe dating back 12 years, before the tenure of General (retired) Pervaiz Musharraf who they were allied with.

Shujaat briefly remained prime minister of Pakistan in 2004 while Elahi was chief minister of Punjab from 2002 to 2007.

Before joining Musharraf's government, they were associated with Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).
