The Rawalpindi Lahore High Court (LHC) Bench on Tuesday issued police officials concerned to register a First Information Report (FIR) against Federal Minister for Ports and Shipping Kamran Michael.
According to details, after the LHC Rawalpindi Bench issued the directions, the complainant approached the local police in Murree and registered the FIR against the minister for a fraud worth Rs 60 million. The minister had allegedly embezzled the money on the pretext of selling the Holy Trinity Church in Murree. However, the matter was deferred at the behest of the influential accused.
Justice of Peace/Additional Sessions Judge Murree directed the SHO Police Station Murree to register the FIR against all accused persons, including Kamran Michael.
Kamran Michael in connivance with a few others, including Shafiq Masih, allegedly looted Rs 60 million from Waqar Ahmed Khan, a property dealer.
Syed Khawar Ameer Bukhari, the council for the complainant/petitioner pleaded that the accused persons, including Michael, induced and defrauded a huge amount from his client, Waqar, on the pretext of sale/lease of The Holy Trinity Church on Mall Road, Murree in the beginning of 2013.
Michael was holding the office of minister for minorities at the time he allegedly embezzled the amount.
