LAHORE: Lahore police have prepared an interim charge-sheet against Lahore cleric Mufti Aziz ur Rehman in a sexual abuse case, ARY News reported on Tuesday.

Sources within Punjab’s prosecution department relayed that the cleric has been declared the main suspect in the charge-sheet with five of his sons nominated as suspects.

Mufti Aziz’s sons are accused of extending death threats to the complainant to hush up the case, the sources added.

Complainant Sabir Shah’s statement has also been made part of the charge-sheet which will likely be submitted to the prosecution branch for approval before it is submitted to the relevant court.
