Who had deposited Rs 2.25 billion in Karachi street vendor account?
KARACHI - Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) sources have revealed that the amount of Rs2.25 billion discovered in a bank account of a Karachi falooda vendor is likely linked with multi-billion rupee money laundering scam of an amount of more than Rs 35 billions.
The scam involves PPP co-chairman Asif Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur among others.
Abdul Qadir, a resident of Orangi Town, Karachi, learned that he has Rs2.225 billion in his bank account which he says he never opened.
He only came to know about the hefty amount when he got a letter from the FIA. “My brother told me that there’s a letter from the investigation agency in my name and that I have been summoned,” he told media.
