NAB Board approves another inquiry against Agha Siraj Durrani

ISLAMABAD: The executive board of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has approved the initiation of another inquiry against Sindh Assembly Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani to investigate suspicious transactions from his bank accounts.

Durrani is already in NAB custody, in a case pertaining to assets beyond known sources of income as well as allegations of embezzlement.

NAB Chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal also approved a similar inquiry against Karachi Mayor Waseem Akhtar. The executive board also approved the filing of a corruption reference against Mehtab Ahmed Khan Abbasi, the former governor of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, for making illegal appointments in Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) during his time as special adviser to prime minister on aviation.

The corruption reference includes former secretary of aviation division Erfan Elahi, Muhammad Ali Tabba and others for illegally appointing Musharraf Rasool as the chairman of the state carrier and causing losses to the national exchequer. The appointment of Rasool had already been declared illegal by the apex court.

Approvals were also given for inquiries against former federal ministers Liaquat Ali Jatoi and Nawab Yousuf Talpur. A statement issued by the anti-graft watchdog stated that the two were under investigation over suspected transactions made from their bank accounts.

In total, the executive board gave approval of filing three references and two inquiries against various suspects, including a corruption reference against Kamran Ali Qureshi, the former chairman of the Capital Development Authority (CDA), and others over alleged abuse of authority.
