The National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) has summoned Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah in a case pertaining to fake accounts today (Tuesday). As per sources, the NAB’s Karachi chapter has asked Sindh CM to appear before NAB’s Karachi office at 11:00 am over interrogation into fake accounts case.
The NAB has summoned Sindh CM over the Joint Investigation Team’s (JIT) report into the fake account case, said NAB in a statement.
Shah had earlier appeared before the Supreme Court-formed joint investigation team (JIT) in Islamabad which was probing the money laundering and fake bank accounts case involving transactions worth billions of rupees. The top leadership of the PPP is alleged to be among the beneficiaries of the fake accounts.
Zardari, Talpur, Omni Group’s Anwar Majid and his sons, and the former Pakistan Stock Exchange chairperson Hussain Lawai are among those being investigated in a case related to money laundering of billions through fictitious bank accounts. In December 2015, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) initiated a discreet investigation into certain bank accounts through which multi-billion rupee transactions have been made after some information came to the fore when an intelligence agency picked up a prominent money changer in an unrelated case.
