ISLAMABAD: An attempt has been thwarted at the NAB office where the NAB officer has been caught stealing important documents relating to Sharif family cases.

A security guard of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Monday foiled an attempt by a bureau officer to ‘steal’ important documents related to corruption references against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his family members being tried in the accountability court.

NAB Chairman retired Justice Javed Iqbal awarded a cash prize of Rs10,000 and an appreciation certificate to Abid Hussain for performing his duty with diligence, dedication, utmost honesty and dedication.

“Abid Hussain foiled an attempt to bring out some important and sensitive documents by the NAB officer from the bureau’s headquarters,” a statement issued from the NAB headquarters said.

Meanwhile, a source in NAB told Dawn that the officer was trying to take some important documents (related to Sharif family’s Panama Leaks cases) secretly. However, the security guard stopped him on the gate and informed his colleagues about the theft.

The name of the official has so far been kept secret by the bureau and the documents have been recovered from him.
