QUETTA: In a successful operation, an intelligence team of the National Accountability Bureau, Balochistan on Monday arrested Brothers International owner Javed Akram from Rawalpindi for allegedly embezzling Rs155 million.

According to the NAB spokesperson, a few years ago Nadar Tehsin, Aamir Tehsin, Babar Tehsin, Javed Akram and Khalid Akram established a firm Brothers International. The owners managed to persuade innocent people into investing in the stock exchange business and looted billions of rupees from them.

When the number of people investing in this fake business increased, they shut down their firm and fled. After the fraudulent firm was exposed, the 250 suffering individuals, who lost their money, knocked on the doors of NAB, Balochistan for justice. The NAB team, headed by Deputy Director Fayaz Afzal, collected evidence against the suspects and filed a reference in court. In the light of investigation by the NAB team, the accountability court issued non-bailable arrest warrants of the suspects. However, due to the absence of the suspects during court hearings, they were declared absconders.
