PM Imran Khan orders nationwide crackdown

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran has ordered authorities to launch a nationwide crackdown against holders of undeclared *benami *properties.

In a letter issued from his office on Friday, Prime Minister Imran Khan directed all deputy commissioners and development authorities in the country to identify *benami *properties in their respective areas and submit reports within one month.

According to the letter, all officers have been directed to submit their reports to the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) by September 30, while also submitting a copy of the report to the Prime Minister's Office.
