Corrupt officials have allegedly embezzled Rs14.2million from the GP fund contribution of retired and deceased teachers. The raid took place after complaints were made by several teachers. A clerk, identified as Nadeem and an agent managed to flee with some important records.
The circle officer anti-corruption, Ahmed Nawaz Rind, said that some important papers had been seized and a further probe was under way and startling disclosures should be expected.
