Addressing a presser in Islamabad, Sheikh Rasheed said 47 out of 88 have been booked. Strict action against hoarding of dollars is underway across the country, he added.
The interior minister said that we have taken a decision to conduct an audit of five companies dealing in dollars. We have also decided to establish a desk in this context on the orders of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
