KARACHI: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has appealed citizens to inform them about any blackmail attempts following complaints received about fraudsters who blackmailed various government servants and departments using NAB’s name. One such man was arrested by the bureau on a tip-off during a raid in Karachi. The accused, Tariq Saleem Akbar, was blackmailing various government servants and departments for money, posing as a deputy director of NAB. A fake NAB identity card has also been seized from him, said the NAB Karachi spokesperson.
