LAHORE: A district court in Lahore reserved its verdict on Monday in a petition seeking registration of a case against Syed Abdul Qadir Gilani – son of Prime Minster Yousaf Raza Gilani – and Shabir Ahmed for allegedly committing fraud worth Rs3,80,000.
Additional district and sessions judge Javed Iqbal Shaikh reserved the decision, which will be announced on June 9.
Petitioner Nauman Ahmed had submitted to the court that he is a close friend of Qadir Gilani and Shabir Ahmed. The accused had visited his house on March 27 earlier this year and informed him that there were some senior posts lying vacant in Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) controlled by the Federal Government. They demanded Rs4,00,000, promising that he will be appointed at a good post in the department.
The petitioner further told the court that he gave the accused Rs3,00,000 in cash and handed them a cheque of Rs80,000 of MCB Limited Sadar Bazar Branch. He contended that they promised him that he will receive an appointment letter within seven to ten days from the SNGPL. However, when Ahmed inquired after his job letter from Qadir Gilani, the latter lashed out.
The Prime Minister's son also threatened the petitioner, claiming no one can dare to take action against him as his father was the prime minister. The petitioner added, that the respondents, in connivance with each other, have committed fraud with him.
The petitioner also said that he had moved applications before the CCPO Lahore and SHO North Cantt against the accused, but they refused to take any action.
He prayed to the court to direct the CCPO and SHO North Cantt to register a case against the accused.
