The Supreme Court, meanwhile, has also reserved its judgement in Imran and Jahangir Tareen's disqualification case.

Minutes after an anti-terrorism court granted bail to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan in four under-trial cases, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Maryam Nawaz tweeted that the strict criteria of justice is only for Nawaz Sharif and his family.

The trust deed establishes that not only Jahangir Tareen and his wife Amina Tareen are "discretionary lifetime beneficiaries" of the property in Newbury, Hampshire, but they also retain full control over the trust and its assets, therefore, making Tareen and wife owners of the asset.

Justice Faisal Arab told that it is possible all legal means were used to transfer the money, but the PTI leader may have not revealed his asset overseas in the nomination papers filed during 2013 General Elections.

The Chief Justice of Pakistan remarked that there is contradiction in the written reply and trust deed.

Justice Nisar said the court had to decide whether PTI chief was an honest man and the verdict should not to be expected anytime soon.

Responding to the chief justice's observation that the offshore company was still not declared, Bukhari stated that neither his client was the beneficial owner of the company nor its shareholder which is why it was not declared.

"No one asks proclaimed offender (Imran Khan) where was he in last two years", she said in a tweet.
