On Monday, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) filed an additional reference against former President Asif Ali Zardari and MPA Faryal Talpur in the case of fake accounts.
The anti-corruption watchdog in its reference alleged that a private bank’s funds were misused and land purchased under the name of a benamidar (official owner).
The office claimed that the accused named Mushtaq had a joint account with the former president, adding that, according to the bank record, the PPP co-chair account had been used. Funds have also been transferred abroad through the same account, the reference alleges.
According to the reference, Rs8.3 billion had been withdrawn from fake accounts and Rs1.2 billion had been illegally removed from a private bank account. It also says that for his use, Rs950 million was transferred back to Zardari’s account.
The reference also claims that Anwar Majeed, Abdul Ghani and Mustafa Zulqarnain were instrumental in the case
