The joint investigation team has confirmed in its report that Prime Minister's daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif is the actual beneficial owner of Nescol and Nielsen enterprises.

The Supreme Court had taken up the matter after it was petitioned by the opposition Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party regarding disclosures in the Panama Papers leaks about offshore assets owned by Sharif's three children.

Low-key meetings between the prime minister and members of his legal team arrived at the decision to challenge the JIT report - in the top court as well as in public - sources in the ruling camp said.

JIT chief Wajid Zia presented the report along with evidence to a three-member special bench of the Supreme Court comprising Justice Ejaz Afzal, Justice Azmat Saeed and Justice Ijazul Ahsan.
