Inquiry against Jam Shoro completed, NAB tells SHC

KARACHI: National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Friday told the Sindh High Court (SHC) that inquiry against the former provincial minister for local bodies Jam Khan Shoro has been completed.

During the hearing, SHC Chief Justice Ahmed Ali also inquired about the formal launch of an investigation against the former minister. He also hinted at summoning NAB director general (DG) in case of delay.

“Special prosecutor is not fully prepared for the case. Such attitude will not be tolerated,” he added.

The ex-minister has been accused of embezzlement in the funds of local government. The anti-graft watchdog, under the supervision of its former chief Qamar Zaman Chaudhry, had launched an investigation into the matter on October 2017.

Shoro was also facing a charge of constructing a petrol pump in Hyderabad’s Qasimabad area.
