The national accountability Bureau on Monday (Dec 23) arrested former federal minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Ahsan Iqbal in a case pertaining to Narowal Sports City Complex.
According to the NAB, Ahsan Iqbal will be presented before an accountability court on Tuesday for his physical remand. His medical check-up will be completed yesterday. Iqbal is accused of using funds of the federal government and the Pakistan Sports Board (PSB) for a sports city being established in Narowal — a multi-billion-rupee project. NAB had begun investigating the complex in July 2018. It was built at the staggering cost of over Rs3,000 million.
The mega venture was one of the primary projects developed under former minister for planning Ahsan Iqbal during the PML-N’s tenure. The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Rawalpindi had also seized the Narowal Sports City project’s record as investigation against Ahsan Iqbal had sped up last month.
