The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) summoned former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, his son Abdul Qadir Gilani and Zain Sukhera on November 16 in the Hajj corruption case, reported Express News on Wednesday.
According to sources, Gilani will be questioned regarding Sukhera’s contract and his appointment, while his son will be asked how he bought a car worth Rs10 million.
FIA’s inquiry officer Hussain Asghar had submitted a progress report in the Supreme Court on Tuesday and informed the court that FIA is probing the appointment of Director General (DG) Hajj Shakeel Rao, who is also one of the accused in the scandal.
Earlier, FIA investigators had issued summons for Abdul Qadir Gilani, his friend Zain Sukhera and others to get their statements recorded in relation to the corruption case but had failed to appear before the court.
Qadir Gilani had written a letter to FIA investigators requesting for more time so he could come to Islamabad from Multan.
The investigators want a clearer picture after Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) MNA from Sahiwal, Pirzada Syed Imran Ahmed Shah, retracted his statement, accusing Qadir Gilani of obtaining bribes from a Hajj official.
