An employee of the Sindh Education Department, Dadu, has accused the district’s education officials of being involved in large-scale corruption.
Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, Abdul Rehman Mallah, superintendent at the DO office, claimed that the officials had embezzled millions of rupees.
Mallah alleged that Imdad Lashari, the district officer of the Sindh Education Management Information System, had bought 10 bungalows and flats, with a farmhouse in Dadu worth almost Rs1 billion. He urged the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to investigate Lashari. Mallah further accused Lashari and elementary DO Maqsood Qureshi of selling hundreds of jobs.
On Friday, Mallah said that he had been contacted by the NAB authorities and had handed over whatever documentary evidence he possessed to them.
Sindh education secretary Fazlullah Pechuho issued a notification, available with The Express Tribune, suspending Lashari, Qureshi, Mallah, Abdul Qadir Lashari and Barkat Ali Janwari on Friday.
