"We have not committed any corruption in any project... bring to the fore if there is any evidence against me or Shahbaz Sharif", he said.

Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has urged party leaders to refrain from criticising the Supreme Court bench hearing the Panama Papers case, as well as other state institutions.

The meeting was to map out the strategy for Sharif family's legal defence in the apex court by challenging the JIT report, The Express Tribune reported citing sources.

The daughter of Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz, is under scrutiny and it centres on her use of a Microsoft font.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is under extreme pressure to resign from his post after the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) investigating the money laundering case against his family, presented its findings to the Supreme Court (SC). Two judges of the Supreme Court have already declared the prime minister as not being truthful.

The 254-page report alleges Sharif's businesses alone are not enough to explain the family's wealth, which includes flats in an upscale London borough.

Court To Hear All Aadhar Related Matters On July 18
The petitioners had alleged that collection of personal details like finger prints and iris scan violated the right to privacy. The SC said the Constitution Bench will sit on July 18 and 19 to hear matters related to Aadhaar .

But, with Sharif in no mood to resign and political unrest spreading across the country and opposition parties demanding resignation of the PM, today's meeting is expected to discuss overall political, security and economic situation of Pakistan as well, a report in the Pakistan news channel Dunya News stated. The bench had also ordered the attorney general that the federation may itself decide about constitution of commission to initiate inquiry and proceed against the person in accordance with law.

The plush apartments are at the heart of the case against the Sharif family, with authorities and the opposition questioning the legitimacy of funds used to buy them via offshore companies.

The Prime Minister's daughter, Maryam Nawaz, is widely seen as her father's political successor however if she's found to have forged documents to hide her family's assets it could dampen her leadership ambitions.

Imran Khan, the leader of the opposition Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party (PTI), on Thursday reiterated his demand for Sharif's resignation, saying the premier has lost all moral grounds to retain office.

As far as Nawaz Sharif is concerned, his term as a prime minister ends next year and Maryam Sharif is regarded as his potential successor.

The prime minister asked if there was any corruption of even a rupee in any of the motorway or energy projects initiated by the PML-N government.
