NAB broadens scope of investigation against Nawaz


Islamabad: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has expanded its investigation of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in the Toshakhana case.

Sources privy to the development relayed the national graft buster has sought details of the PML-N supremo’s bank accounts, vehicles, and properties from the relevant departments.

They said the agency had sent a letter to the Lahore Deputy Commissioner Lahore Development Authority (LDA), the GST and private banks.

The corruption regulator further requested LDA to provide documents on the 1,550 kanal land in Lahore, allegedly owned by Sharif, excluding the Mercedes and Land Cruisers data he used from the excise and tax authorities.

On September 9, an accountability court had declared Nawaz Sharif a proclaimed offender in the Toshakhana reference. Ex-PM Sharif, former president Asif Ali Zardari and former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gillani are named in the reference for allegedly obtaining luxury vehicles from the treasury by paying 15 per cent of the actual price.

It is worth noting that on the same date the court charged Zardari and Gilani.
