LAHORE: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has summoned former foreign minister Khawaja Asif on Friday in a case regarding this Kent View Housing Society in his hometown, Sialkot, reported Geo News.
The NAB had originally asked the PML-N leader to appear before it on June 26, but Kh Asif’s lawyer had advised the Bureau that his client would be unable to look as he was occupied with the National Assembly’s budget session.
A spokesperson for its anti-graft body stated Asif’s attorney, Najam-ul-Hasan, had filed replies on behalf of his client, but the Bureau had deemed them disappointing and summoned the former defence ministry on July 3.
NAB has requested Asif to look at 11am in a private capacity.
Asif was accused of setting home society on state property and selling plots contrary to the approved design
The NAB has accused that the PML-N leader of setting a home society on state territory, selling plots within the approved design plan and property grabbing.
Based on some call-up note issued to Asif because of his final look, NAB said that the evidence gathered so far shows the PML-N pioneer prima facie established a home project, specifically Kent View Housing Society Sialkot, that was working illegally.
The anti-graft body had requested him to describe exactly what will be the sources and overall number of funds invested in the job by him, by his wife and kid along with other spouses, The News reported.
The corruption watchdog had alleged that Asif, in collusion with the managing of this society, illegally sold plots within the approved design plan of 137 kanals.
It included that Asif in connivance with the revenue authorities got important approvals though the society was in illegal occupation of their nation property. Additionally, it asserted that the former defence ministry, in collusion with the managing of this society, illegally inhabited different parts of property owned by people who never offered their property into the society.
