Fake bank accounts: Laundryman summoned by JIT over shady transaction

After a falooda vendor, a school teacher and a dead man, a fake company was found after a laundryman’s name in Karachi, a private media outlet reported on Thursday.

The washerman, Tariq Saeed, has maintained that he learnt about a company registered after his name after he received a notice from the Joint Investigation Agency (JIT) formed to prove the fake accounts sent him a notice.

Saeed was caught by surprise when he was inquired about a transaction worth Rs14 million on account of purchase of steal. According to the media reports, he had taken a loan of Rs25,000 from a private source to start his business and has no bank account at all.

Saeed has been summoned by FIA in Karachi along with the sale agreement of steal, bills and other bank account details.

However, he said that he is an ordinary worker with no bank account and thus could not produce the documents demanded by the JIT.

It is worth noticing that the incident has come in wake of a series of fake accounts identified in Karachi. A falooda vendor was to be having Rs2.25 billion in Karachi’s Orangi Town after which the FIA had started the probe which is still underway.
