Asif Zardari lands in yet another big trouble

ISLAMABAD - Former President Asif Ali Zardari lands in yet another big trouble as two more companies belonging to the Zardari Group have been identified in connection with the alleged laundering of billions of rupees.

Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has made the startling revelations in the Supreme Court (SC) on Thursday.

Asif Ali Zardari is currently being probed as part of a 2015 case regarding fake accounts and fictitious transactions conducted through 29 ‘benami’ accounts in Summit Bank, Sindh Bank and UBL.

The FIA, in its progress report submitted in the SC today, claimed to have identified two additional companies — M/s Landmarks and National Gases (Pvt) Limited — tied up with the investigation.

The agency said it came to know of the two companies from a hard disk confiscated during last week's raid on Khoski Sugar Mills — an Omni Group-owned facility whose head Anwar Majeed is a close Zardari confidant.
