Islamabad: An accountability court in Islamabad has on Tuesday indicted Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader Ahsan Iqbal in the Narowal Sports Complex case. The accused has pleaded not guilty.
Former director general of the Pakistan Sports Board (PSB) Akhtar Nawaz, officers of planning department Sarfaraz Rasool and Asif Sheikh and private contractor Muhammad Ahmed have also been indicted.
What I want to mention here is that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) accused PML-N leaders of illegally launching the 3 billion rupees Narowal project and causing billions of dollars in losses to the national finances.
NAB claimed to have received a complaint that the construction cost of Narowal Sports City was approximately Rs 6 billion, which violated the rules.
