GILGIT: The Gilgit-Baltistan (G-B) Accountant General Pakistan Revenue (AGPR) has directed the government to recover over two million rupees from two special assistants of the chief minister.
The two officials are not entitled to receive such an amount under the Self Governance Order, an official in the G-B government told the Express Tribune on Tuesday. “The AGPR addressed a letter to the chief secretary stating this is against the Self Governance Order 2009,” said the official, who requested anonymity.
He said that the amount to be recovered was Rs 2.4 million and that Muhmmad Naseer and Muhammad Musa were the beneficiaries who withdrew the amount from the national exchequer on account of their salary. Last month, Mohammad Naseer took the oath as a minister in the G-B Cabinet.
