Ex-CM Sindh Qaim Ali Shah summoned by NAB today
RAWALPINDI: National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has summoned former Chief Minister of Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah today in connection with investigation related to Thatta Sugar Mill and Dadu Sugar Mill.
Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader was served call-up notices to turn up at NAB headquarters in Rawalpindi at 3:00 Pm today along with relevant record of sugar mills. Upon failure to show up, he was warned of legal action.
According to NAB, former CM allegedly sold Dadu Sugar Mill at throwaway prices, causing a huge loss to Government exchequer and benefiting Naudero Sugar Mill in the process.
Earlier, on March 26, Islamabad High Court (IHC) had granted a 10-day pre-arrest bail to Shah in a case related to Thatta Sugar Mill.
A divisional bench, comprising Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhter Kiyani, approved interim bail of former chief minister against surety bonds worth Rs1 million and directed him to join the investigation.
His counsel stated before court that NAB had served called-up notices to his client for March 27 for probe related to Thatta Sugar Mill and Dadu Sugar Mill. He pleaded with court to prevent bureau from arresting Shah on his appearance before probe team.
