ISLAMABAD (92 News) – A Joint Investigation Team (JIT), formed to probe Sindh mega money laundering scandal, has completed the report related to the fake accounts. According to the sources, the JIT report stated that the Sindh government misused the authority for giving benefits to the Omni Group. In the report, the sources also revealed that the billions of rupees were transferred through fake accounts for money laundering. It also said that the sugar mills worth of billions rupees were sold out in cheap rates. The sources said that Omni Group chairman Anwar Majeed and AG Majeed are the main accused, while former president Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur are likely to be included in the list of accused. On September 6, the SC had formed a JIT to probe the money laundering case involving Rs35 billion funneled through fake bank accounts at three local banks. The JIT interrogated 97 people, including Asif Ali Zardari, his sister Faryal Talpur, Anwar Majeed, his son and former Summit Bank president Hussain Lawai. During investigation, the JIT had also summoned PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari twice but he didn’t appear before the investigators. However, he submitted his reply to the JIT through his lawyers.
