National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) Balochistan chapter has initiated legal action against impersonators involved in blackmailing people using the anti-graft watchdog’s name.
Officials familiar with the matter said NAB Balochistan has taken notice of the fake calls being made to government officials and devised a strategy to deal with it by sharing information with concerned departments regarding the impersonators.
“General public, government officials and accused persons in NAB cases are asked not to share any data with people calling them and introducing themselves as NAB officers,” according to a NAB statement. It further clarified that NAB, in accordance with its rules and regulations, writes an official letter to the accused person to appear before the investigation officer.
No personal contact or call is made by any level officer in this connection. It has been learnt that some elements are contacting accused persons including government officers impersonating themselves as DG NAB from different IPs of the internet which is blatant fraud and forgery.
