The Al Azizia Steel Mills reference is among three filed against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his family by the NAB a year ago on the Supreme Court's directives.
However, the same day when the NAB's presser came, the WB issued a statement to deny that its report from 2016 levelled money-laundering allegations against the former PM.
Switching on the damage control mode, Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that Nawaz Sharif has been misqoted in his interview, in which he accepted that 2002 Mumbai terror attacks in India were conducted by Pakistan. He has denounced non-state actors for crossing the border and killing people in Mumbai. On Monday, the National Security Committee (NSC) condemned the comments and described them as "incorrect and misleading".
It also asked the Prime Minister if he would show the courage to ensure that the trail of 26/11 is either held under the guidance of worldwide agencies or they are handed over to India. Sharif's response today on the controversy is contradictory to the stance taken by his party, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, whose president Shehbaz Sharif said on Saturday that the party "rejects all claims made in the report, be they direct or indirect", Dawn newspaper reported. He further said Nawaz speaking Modi's language against Pakistan state simply to protect his ill-gotten Rs 300 billion stashed in his sons companies abroad.Mir Jafar was the commander in Siraj- ud -Daulah's army and he colluded with the East India Company to defeat the Nawab of Bengal in the Battle of Plassey in 1757.
"Indian media is giving the issue a different hue, and we should not be a part of it", he said.

Mahamat expressed deep concern about the prevailing situation in the Palestinian territories following the relocation of the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
Against the backdrop of allegations by the opposition that he had gone against the country's interests, Sharif demanded the formation of a national commission to decide who had committed treason.
A parliamentary committee on Tuesday summoned National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman retired Justice Javed Iqbal to appear before it on Wednesday to give an explanation over the bureau's move to initiate an inquiry into alleged money laundering to India by PML-N's supreme leader Nawaz Sharif.
He said, "What's wrong with my statement?"
However, Mr Abbasi's proposal to form the committee was rejected by the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) whereas the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement had sought time for consultation with the leadership on the issue.
The participants of NSC meeting termed the PML-N supremo's remarks as contrary to the facts and said that Indian government didn't present evidence for investigation.
