ISLAMABAD: Former police officer, Inamur Rehman Sehri, who has claimed to have evidence against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif in the Panamagate case, was one of the beneficiaries of the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO).

Sehri is said to own assets beyond his known sources of income and a case was registered against him in the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) during former president General (retd) Pervez Musharf’s regime.

He is a former superintendent of police and has served in Pakistan Railway’s police and also worked as deputy director in Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).

During an interview to a private news channel, Sehri had claimed on Saturday that he had sufficient evidence with him to put the leaders to task.

The former police officer had left Pakistan after a corruption case was registered against him and he was declared an absconder by the National Accountability Court.

According to sources, he was known for corrupt practices in Pakistan Railways Police and FIA.

A reference was filed against him in NAB in October 24, 2002 after which a formal investigation was launched against him. Reference was based on the allegation that his assets were disproportionate to his known means of income.

NAB tried to get hold of top bureaucrats including Sehri, who were allegedly involved in corruption and misappropriation of government funds and who had gone abroad.

In 2007, NAB sought the assistance of Interpol and the Secretariat General of International Crime Police Organisation (ICPO). Interpol, based in Lyon, France, issued red notices against five absconders, including Sehri on NAB’s request.

The accused were wanted in cases of corruption, fraud, forgery, criminal breach of trust and corrupt practices.

    A propaganda is being launched so that his testimony can be doubted and he can be arrested before he could appear before JIT and Supreme Court. Another move of Sicilian mafia. Be careful Recommend

    Red warrants via Interpol were issued in 2007 but he was not arrested and Sehri continues to live abroad until today. Considering all facts NAB chairman should be arrested and interrogated for taking light action against former corrupt government employee.Recommend

    What if he is an NRO beneficiary? It doesn’t affect his testimony as per law. Recommend
