Former OGRA chairman Tauqir Sadiq is likely to be brought back to Pakistan on Sunday following his delivery by Dubai authorities to Interpol.

Media reports said the former OGRA chairman, who is the major accused in a mega corruption scam of Rs 82 billion, was produced in the Federal Court of Dubai on Thursday. Later, Dubai authorities handed him over to the Interpol. He will now be handed over by Interpol to a Pakistani investigation team.
