Islamabad: Pakistani Interior Minister Nisar Ali Khan said on Thursday he would quit his post after the Supreme Court rules on corruption accusations against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, whatever the result.

The announcement by one of Sharif's longstanding political allies marks a fresh blow to the premier as he awaits a ruling that could disqualify him from office.

Khan said he had clashed with members of Sharif's PML-N party over how to tackle the Panama Papers leak, which led to the investigation into how Sharif obtained his wealth.

"The day Supreme Court decides, whether it is in favour of Nawaz Sharif or against him, I have decided I will quit from my ministry and I will also quit from the National Assembly," Khan said.

Sharif this month dismissed a report from the corruption investigation that raised questions about his wealth as slander.
