The Supreme Court on Friday resumed the hearing in the NICL corruption case.

A three-judge bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and including Justice Jawwad S. Khawaja and Justice Khilji Arif Hussain was hearing the case regarding alleged corruption in the affairs of the National Insurance Company Limited.

During the hearing, the court rejected the Federal Investigation Agency’s report pertaining to the issue of the recovery of Rs 420 million submitted before the bench a day earlier.

Chief Justice Iftikhar in his remarks said that in violation of court orders, Waqar Haider had previously stopped the transfer of Zafar Qureshi, the former head of the FIA team investigating the scam who was later appointed the Inspector General Police Gilgit-Baltistan, adding that Haider now faced contempt of court action.
