Probe into assets case

Imran Khan had said that “the real estate business has generated a lot of money during the last three years. Farah Khan has been in the real estate business for the last 20 years.”
The PTI chairman had said that initiating these cases is intended at attacking his person, reiterating that Farah is innocent.
“I ask the NAB if a case can even be built against Farah Khan or not?” Imran Khan questioned.
