The Supreme Court has rejected the bail application of former IG police of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Malik Naveed Khan, in a case linked to the arms purchase scam.
The three judge bench of the apex court, headed by Mian Saqib Nisar on Wednesday heard the bail application, filed by former top cop of the K-P.
During the hearing Additional Prosecutor General NAB Abar Tarar appeared before the bench and strongly opposed grant of bail to the accused. He also informed about all the facts related to the involvement of the accused in this scam.
Tarar stated that Naveed made Rs360 million in an arms purchase deal worth Rs6 billion with a Chinese firm a few years back. He also informed the court that NAB has already recovered approximately Rs200 million in this matter.
