A special team of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Thursday (July 18) raided former finance minister Miftah Ismail home aimed to arrest him in a multi-billion rupees LNG scam, but the team yet not allowed him to enter home
According to sources, after the signature of the chairman NAB on the arrest warrant of former finance minister Miftah Ismail and former MD Pakistan State Oil, the NAB team raided his home. The team entered the house of former finance minister but Miftah was not home and his mobile phone was off as well. As the NAB team including female officers reached Miftah’s residence, the security guards refuse to open the doors. The security supervisor at the house stopped the NAB team and said that the doors cannot be opened without consultation.
Sources said that the former finance minister’s cell phone was also off since 12pm due to which the anti-graft watchdog was unable to trace his location. The team will also raid his office in the second phase.
The development came following arrest of former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi by NAB in LNG case. He has been ‘accused of commission of the offense of corruption and corrupt practices’.
