The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Saturday recommended the Supreme Court that the case filed by the late air chief Air Marshal Asghar Khan be closed for lack of evidence.

The FIA submitted a report in the SC today which stated that there is "not enough evidence to continue investigating" the case. “There are contradictions in the statements of the witnesses,” the report said.

Furthermore, the report stated that the case is more than 25 years old and no record of bank transactions could be found.

"Politicians who were accused of taking money have also denied the allegations," it further read.

A day earlier, the apex court announced that it will hear on December 31 (Monday) the case of the former air chief pertaining to the distribution of Rs 140 million among political parties ahead of the 1990 general elections.
