MANDRA: Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif threatened to contact the Supreme Court in case a transparent investigation was not carried out into the memo controversy, DawnNews reported.

Speaking to media representatives here on Saturday, Sharif said an inquiry commission should be established with the consent of the opposition so that the issue could reach a logical conclusion.

He suggested that retired judges could be among the members of the commission or the national assembly could also hold an investigation.

Answering a question on the Senate elections, Sharif said he was not afraid of the elections and said they should be held on time.

Moreover, he said there was a need to curb the role of intelligence agencies in politics.

The PML-N leader expressed his concern over the progress of the Abbottabad commission and said the inquiry appeared to be approaching a dead end.
