Anti-graft body dismisses corruption petition against Gulalai 


PESHAWAR: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Ehtesab Commission on Monday dismissed a petition against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNA Ayesha Gulalai, saying that the commission only probes corruption cases of over Rs5 million.

The commission said that Gulalai has accusations of misappropriation of only Rs1.2 million against her.

PTI leaders Noor Zaman and Saleem Khan had submitted the petition to the commission on August 8 accusing Gulalai of corruption and asking it to launch an enquiry into the matter.

Addressing a news conference, Noor Zaman had claimed that he had evidence of Gulalai misappropriating from the amount she received for development work in KP.

Noor Zaman was shot dead in Lakki Marwat on Sunday due to a personal enmity, police officials said. They added that he was killed when gunmen on motorcycles opened fire on him near Tajori.

The suspects managed to escape from the scene.
