Qazi Misbah informed the judge that Nawaz Sharif had joined the investigation and replied to a questionnaire given to him. He said when the NAB reference was filed in 2019, the former premier Nawaz Sharif was facing serious health issues.

He asserted that Nawaz Sharif had not demanded the car and no document was available proving any such demand.

In response to the arguments of Qazi Misbah, the court asked the NAB prosecutor, “What should be done now?” The prosecutor said the bureau would look into the issue for further action.
