ISLAMABAD/SRINAGAR : The Supreme Court on Friday disqualified Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif from his post after an investigative panel alleged his family’s wealth was far above their earnings in a scathing corruption report.

The verdict comes in the wake of investigation into the families undeclared wealth after the names of Nawaz Sharif’s children cropped in Panama papers linking them to offshore companies.

The apex court has ordered NAB to complete investigation in Panamagate case within six weeks. SC judges arrived in court room 1 after a brief consultation in the chambers, while a large number of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz workers converged outside the SC.
