NAB summons Ahsan Iqbal on Wednesday


ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has summoned Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader Ahsan Iqbal to appear before the bureau on Wednesday in a probe related to alleged corruption in the Narowal Sports City case.

Iqbal, who is summoned by NAB’s Rawalpindi office on Wednesday, is accused of causing losses worth billions of rupees to the national exchequer by initiating the project in his home constituency.

According to sources, Iqbal is accused of starting the project – worth Rs3 billion– illegally. Pakistan Sports Board is also accused of illegally using its authority for the construction of this project.

The NAB summons for Iqbal comes a day after PML-N leader Rana Sanaullah was arrested by the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) for “drugs possession”.
