Court grants NAB two-day transit remand of Qaimkhani

RAWALPINDI: An accountability court on Saturday granted the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) two-day transit remand of former director general of parks and horticulture of the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation Liaqat Ali Khan Qaimkhani in the fake accounts case.

Reportedly, Qaimkhani will be produced before an accountability court in Islamabad on Monday.

On Friday, the NAB confiscated gold coins, prize bonds, five sets of expensive jewelry and foreign currency from Qaimkhani’s secret coffer. The valuables are expected to be worth Rs150 million while another coffer is yet to be opened.

What further shocked the authorities was that his home’s doors were remote-controlled with a 60-yard bathroom.

Sources revealed that in the span of 20 years, Qaimkhani had built 71 parks “only in the documents” and no park was built in real, and the accused ex-DG had formed fake companies for illegal purposes.

On Thursday, the accountability watchdog raided Qaimkhani’s residence in Karachi and arrested him in Bagh Ibne Qasim scam.

The anti-graft body seized eight luxury vehicles, sophisticated arms, property files, jewellery and official records of the KMC from his custody.

Moreover, documents of seven bungalows in Karachi and Lahore were also found in his home during a search in PECHS, Block-6. ‘Original files’ of the KMC were also seized from the held suspect’s home.
