NAB to Issue Red Warrants of Son in Law of Shahbaz Sharif
- National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has tightened the trap around Ali Imran Yousaf.
- The red warrants would be issued in the coming days and then Interpol would be contacted for the arrest of Ali Imran.
- Ali Imran is accused of receiving Rs120 million from Ikram Naveed, the former CEO of the Punjab Power Development Company (PPDC).
The son-in-law of Shahbaz Sharif, Ali Imran Yousaf, is in great trouble as NAB asked to issue red warrants of his arrest.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has asked its headquarters to issue red warrants for the arrest of Ali Imran.
On April 22, the Bureau wrote a letter to the headquarters asking it to issue the red warrants for Ali Imran. Upon not receiving any notice from the headquarters, the NAB again wrote a letter and began acting in this regard.
According to the sources, the red warrants would be issued in the coming days and then the Interpol would be contacted for the arrest of Ali Imran.
Ali Imran is allegedly involved in the SaafPani Company case. The officials of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had asked Ali Imran many times to appear before the investigation team, but he did not appear and absconded.
Earlier, an accountability court in Lahore had declared Ali Imran Yousaf, a proclaimed absconder on the request of NAB.
He is accused of receiving graft in excess of Rs120 million from Ikram Naveed, the former CEO of the Punjab Power Development Company (PPDC), and is the subject of a NAB probe. An investigation officer told that Ali Imran appeared before the bureau only once, on April 24 and during his appearance he had failed to answer the queries about the transfer of millions to him fromIkramNaveed.
Ali Imran is not the only one in the Sharif family to ignore NAB summons. On June 25, the NAB summoned Shahbaz Sharif after he failed to appear before NAB to answer questions about the Punjab SaafPani Company Case.
Shahbaz claimed that he would cooperate with NAB but chose not to appear before its three-member combined investigation team to respond to queries about illegalities in the probe.
