ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has decided to launch an inquiry into the sugar and wheat scandals over the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) reports on Monday.
The sources in NAB said that sugar and wheat crisis is a prime mega scandal and the corruption watchdog body will not remain silent into the scam of billions of rupees.
The sources also said that the NAB is thoroughly reviewing the sugar, wheat scandal and will conduct a transparent inquiry into the matter.
Earlier this month, the federal government had made public reports of a high-level inquiry
into the sugar and wheat crises that had hit the people hard across the country in January.
FIA Director General Wajid Zia carried out a probe into the crises and furnished their reports to the prime minister upon completion for perusal. Prime Minister Khan went through the report before these were made public.
The report revealed PTI stalwart Jahangir Khan Tareen, a brother of Food Minister Khusro Bakhtiyar, and PML-Q leader Moonis Elahi are among the beneficiaries of the sugar crisis which took a serious toll on the people, especially the poor.
Prime Minister Imran Khan vowed legal action against those responsible for the sugar and wheat price hike after the detailed forensic reports.
