KARACHI: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Wednesday arrested Sindh Engro Coal Mining Company Chairman Khursheed Jamali.
The accountability watchdog arrested Jamali along with three other accused related to a private company from Karachi.
In a notification released by NAB, the three have been arrested for committing irregularities in the affairs of Sindh Transmission and Dispatch Company.
According to sources, an arrest warrant for Jamali was issued two days ago for his involvement in the Sindh Transmission and Dispatch Company located in Nooriabad. The Nooriabad power project was originally conceived by the Sindh government in 2012, but could not be materialized then due to ‘delays in regulatory approvals’, then adviser to the chief minister on finance and energy Syed Murad Shah had said.
Jamali’s name has also been placed on the Exit Control List (ECL) in connection with the fake bank accounts case.
Sources further said Jamali has been serving as a consultant for the Sindh government in various departments.
The accused is expected to be produced before an accountability court on Thursday, sources added.
