CM Sindh appears before NAB in fake bank accounts case

ISLAMABAD: Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah appeared before National Accountability Bureau in Islamabad today in connection with investigation into fake bank accounts case.
Other PPP leaders accompanied him to the bureau’s office.
Later talking to the media, Murad Ali Shah said he responded to all the queries of the NAB. He said he will fully cooperate with the anti-graft body in the case.
During the previous hearing, the National Accountability Bureau’s combined investigation team (CIT) had recorded his statement, handed over him a questionnaire and asked him to submit a written response on it. NAB’s officials had grilled the chief minister for about an hour-and-a-half while NAB Director General Irfan Manghi had recorded his statement.
However, he had asserted that he had nothing to conceal and denounced a report of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) in the same case.
Meanwhile, Manghi has contacted the district administration and sought additional security measures at the NAB office.
On March 21, the NAB Rawalpindi had summoned Murad in a case related to awarding subsidy of billions of rupees to OMNI Group sugar mills in Sindh’s Thatta and Dadu.
The accountability bureau had further directed the chief minister to bring along all records pertaining to the Sakrand, Khoski, Pangrio and Thatta Sugar Mills.
The Supreme Court had formed an investigation team to probe the fake accounts case. The team submitted a report in which it named 172 people, including former president Asif Ali Zardari, his sister MNA Faryal Talpur and son Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah.
