ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Rawalpindi on Tuesday submitted records pertaining to cases against late Brigadier (r) Asad Munir to NAB Chairman Justice (r) Javed Iqbal.
On Monday, it was reported that Iqbal has decided to personally investigate the alleged suicide committed by Brig (r) Munir.
Munir apparently committed suicide after the emergence of media reports that the accountability watchdog has decided to file a reference of abuse of office against him.
According to a press release issued on Monday, the NAB chief “has summoned all relevant record in this regard from NAB Rawalpindi immediately so that all requisites of the law can be fulfilled.”
In a last note accredited to him, Munir had appealed to the chief justice of Pakistan to bring changes in the NAB’s operations where “incompetent people are playing with life and honor of citizens in name of accountability”.
“I am committing suicide to avoid humiliation, being handcuffed and paraded in front of the media,” he had allegedly written.
Consequently, Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Asif Saeed Khosa took suo motu notice of Munir’s alleged suicide. The top judge has also sought the details of investigations against Munir by the NAB.
