Islamabad (Staff Report): The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Wednesday has formed a high-level team to probe into the Panama joint investigation team (JIT)’s charges against the Security and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) chairman that he tampered records related to the Sharif family money trail.
