CM Murad appears before NAB

ISLAMABAD: 

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Thursday summoned Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah in a fake accounts case related to ‘Roshan Sindh Programme’.

NAB had accused the chief minister of illegally awarding contracts for installing solar street lights.

Several companies allegedly won the contracts worth billions of rupees by paying bribes of Rs90 million.

Murad was accompanied by PPP leaders Qamar Zaman Kaira, Murtaza Wahab, Nasir Shah, Nayyar Hussain Bukhari and Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar.

Strict security arrangements were made by PPP workers to avoid any untoward situation.

Senior PPP leaders had advised the chief minister to appear before the anti-graft body today.

While talking about media after his appearance, CM Murad said he did not appear before NAB out of fear of arrest but because he did not want the media to create a ‘unnecessary hype’.
