The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has decided to open an inquiry into a case against officials of the National Highway Authority (NHA). The accused persons have been alleged for misuse of authority and violation of PPRA rules in awarding the tender of five toll plazas.
According to a press release, the bureau had previously directed NHA to re-tender the award of the toll plazas on priority basis.
The executive board meeting presided by NAM Admiral (retd) Fasih Bokari urged an inquiry in the matter. The project for the time being has been halted on the direction of A&P Division and no contract has been awarded as yet.
