NAB launches probe into two buildings

The anti-graft watchdog is acting on the complaint of Abdul Jabbar Rehmani

APP August 29, 2020


The National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Karachi has initiated investigation against two apartment buildings in Hyderabad. Earlier this week, NAB sent letters to the offices of the deputy commissioner, inspector-general of registration, revenue board, and the Hyderabad Municipal Corporation to prevent any change of ownership, sale or purchase of properties in the two buildings located in Latifabad and Hussainabad, respectively. The bureau had also served call up notices to 13 HMC officials earlier this month asking them to appear before NAB’s inquiry team. Of these, eight officials have been transferred and one is retired. All of their statements were recorded before NAB. The anti-graft watchdog is acting on the complaint of Abdul Jabbar Rehmani, president of community organisation Fundamental Rights Commission Pakistan. Rehmani claims ownership rights of shops and flats in the two buildings were changed unlawfully in connivance with HMC officials.
