An anti-corruption team is conducting an inquiry into the corruption scandal, said PM Khan while interacting with the public on Sunday.
The premier said that the investigation was launched after he received complaints about the project. Last week, the Punjab government’s anti-corruption department formed a team of technical, legal and financial experts to investigate it.
A fact-finding committee of the Punjab government in its report earlier said that the map of the project was changed to benefit a few housing societies, according to sources.
The report was forwarded to Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar by Chief Secretary Jawwad Rafiq.
Former Rawalpindi commissioner Captain (retired) Mohammad Mehmood and land requisition officer Wasim Tabish unlawfully paid Rs23 million to acquire land for the road, according to the report. They facilitated a well-known Sangjani family in doing so.
Zulfi Bukhari, PM Khan’s special assistant, had resigned after he was accused of being involved in the corruption scandal.
