On Tuesday, NAB Chairman Justice (r) Javed Iqbal took the notice of money laundering allegations against Nawaz Sharif .

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Thursday refused to comment on the media reports surfacing that Pakistan's former prime minister Nawaz Sharif laundered 4.9 billion dollars to India, saying, " This is something that former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has to respond to".

It said that the bureau's press release was based on a media report which had referred to the World Bank's Migration and Remittance Fact Book Report 2016 alleging the sending of $4.9bn to India. "Does it not know that reputed newspapers like the Wall Street Journal, Dawn, Business Recorder had reported on the issue?", he asked.

"The NAB Chairman should present all evidence against me within 24 hours. Failing to do so, the NAB should apologise to the nation and the chairman should resign", Sharif demanded.

Marriyum said that corruption of not even a single penny had been established in the six references that were filed against Nawaz Sharif because of which further extension in the trial period was being sought.

"Whatever the NAB is doing it's doing for the country, for the people", the NAB chairman said in Peshawar.

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, the PML-N supreme leader demanded the NAB chief bring forward evidence to prove the allegations against him or resign.

He said no statuettes of limitations were crossed by NAB, adding that the Bureau remained in its constitutional jurisdictions.

"And let's suppose it is a crime, then this crime will continue to be committed because it's in the interest of this country". Earlier, the World Bank rejected reports that Nawaz Sharif had laundered $ 4.9 billion to India.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Defense Minister Khurram Dastgir on Wednesday slammed the actions of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) after the corruption watchdog initiated a "false" probe against Nawaz Sharif.

"This is shameless pre-poll rigging", the three-time Prime Minister asserted.

Sharif has dismissed the corruption charges as politically motivated.
