Khursheed Shah, senior PPP leader, was detained by NAB

ISLAMABAD: Senior leader of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Khursheed Shah from near Bani Gala was arrested by National Accountability Bureau Rawalpindi on Wednesday. According to NAB sources, in a situation involving the acquisition of property beyond the means of revenue, the PPP chief was detained.

Sources in NAB said the arrest came after allegations were proven in the initial investigation against the PPP leader and that further inquiry would be carried out in the case.

The PPP leader is accused of allotting to himself an amnesty plot illegally from a cooperative society in Sukkur.

The investigation has been ongoing since August 7 and it was alleged that the PPP leader built bungalows, petrol pumps, and hotels in the name of others (benamidaar).  

NAB sources said Khursheed Shah would be shifted to Sukkur under transit remand.

NAB Sukkur had summoned Shah through a letter, however, the PPP leader wrote back to the authority, declining to appear before it.

On July 31, the NAB had given approval for an inquiry against the senior PPP leader.
