NAB has unrefutable evidences against Shahbaz Sharif: NAB sources
ISLAMABAD – The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has said that it has concrete evidence against the former Punjab CM Shahbaz Sharif.
Shahbaz Sharif has been arrested after unrefutable evidences were collected against him, NAB sources have revealed.
In a statement issued by the anti-graft watchdog on Friday, he said that the Bureau had been conducting investigation of Punjab Land Development Company (PLDC) and Casa Lahore Casa Developers against Shehbaz Sharif and his arrest had been made after investigation.
The investigation revealed sufficient evidence to prove involvement of ex-Punjab CM in corruption cases.
Giving reasons of the opposition leader’s arrest, the anti-graft body said that Sharif misused his authority as the chief minister of the province and acted in connivance of then secretary to CM Punjab Fawad Hassan Fawad and others.
The anti-graft agency said that the contract for the housing scheme was won by a construction company titled Chaudhry Latif and Sons but Sharif awarded the contract to Lahore Casa Developers – a proxy group of Paragon City (Pvt) Limited, which is said to be owned by Railways Minister Saad Rafique.
"The ex-Punjab CM in a meeting dated 21 10 2014 unlawfully directed PLDC to entrust the project of Ashiana lqbal Punjab to LDA This decision of accused was illegal and mala fide as PLDC was the company which was established for undertaking such housing projects," the statement added.
