Mashood was seen demanding a bribe from a fraudulent immigration official Asim Malik via telephone, in a video footage aired on ARY News program ‘Khara Sach’ hosted by Mubashir Lucman on August 13.
The government had formed a committee headed by PML-N leader Raja Zafarul Haq to probe the matter. It is learnt that the committee had sent its recommendation to the Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif, wherein it reportedly suggested the CM to sack the minister as Cabinet member as his telephonic conversation with a fraudulent official was found genuine.
In a video, Mashood was seen seeking bribe from Malik purportedly on behalf of the chief minister Punjab.
Sources told that the committee recommended that all positions of Mashood would be taken back. Mashhood has already been sidelined from all key meetings and decision-making processes of the PML-N.
However, the final decision in this regard will be taken by Haq and CM Punjab Shahbaz Sharif.
