QUETTA: Dr Arsalan Iftikhar, son of former Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry, has been appointed vice chairman of the Balochistan Board of Investment, Express News reported on Saturday.
The investment board was formed in 2010 with an aim to lure foreign investors and engage them in Balochistan.
Balochistan has an abundance of natural resources but remains untouched since foreign investors are not provided any proper mechanism to initiate any mega project.
In 2012, a financial impropriety case was filed against Dr Iftikhar following media reports that he had received between Rs300 and Rs400 million from Malik Riaz, chief of Bahria Town, to influence judicial proceedings.
The former chief justice summoned his son to the court in this case but later detached himself from the bench.
