NAB seeks proof from Usman Dar about Khawaja Asif’s foreign investment
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has sought proofs from Special Aide to Prime Minister Usman Dar about Khawaja Asif’s foreign investment.
The NAB wrote a letter to the PM’s special adviser on Wednesday. In the letter, Usman Dar was asked to submit evidence against PML-N’s Khawaja Asif, establishing his foreign investment in UAE, under cover of Iqama (foreign work permit).
Dar had approached NAB to start an investigation against the former defence minister. In his complaint, he said the PML-N leader concealed his offshore assets from the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) and was getting a monthly salary of Rs1.6 million from a UAE company.
NAB Chairman Javed Iqbal, who gave the go-ahead to the probe, had said the bureau would provide ample opportunity to Khawaja Asif to contest the accusations against him.
On August 16, the anti-graft body has also ordered initiation of inquiries against former federal minister Khawaja Asif, former provincial irrigation minister of Sindh Zafar Ali Laghari, former MNA Abdul Hakeem Baloch, former MNA captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar, PTI leader Abdul Aleem Khan and others.
