NAB has closed inquiry of 12 plots against opposition leader in National Assembly (NA) Mian Shahbaz Sharif. 

Justice Jawad ul Hassan of Accountability Court (AC) accepted NAB plea for closing the reference. 

The NAB took the plea in the matter  that due to fire incident in LDA building all the record has been reduced to ashes.

It was further said that several among them who were nominated in the inquiry have passed away. Those who have died include Mian Atta Ullah and Mian Raza Atta Ullah as well.

Investigations against the former CM Punjab and others were started in 2000. 

According to NAB plots measuring one kanal were given to favorites against the rules and when the inquiry started the orders were issued for cancellation of the plots.
