NAB asks Imran Khan to present records of funds related to £190m settlement

ISLAMABAD:The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Tuesday sought from Pakistan TehreekeInsaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan the records of the funds related to the £190m settlement case. Imran Khan appeared before the NAB office, Rawalpindi region, in Islamabad, where he reportedly remained for several hours and underwent questioning.

According to media reports quoting sources, during the investigation, NAB officials grilled Imran Khan over the records of correspondence with the National Crime Agency (NCA) in the United Kingdom and freezing orders from him (Imran Khan) regarding the £190 million. When Imran Khan reached NAB office, his legal team comprising Khawaja Haris Ahmad, Salman Safdar, Intezar Panjotha, and others was accompanying him. Imran Khan’s wife Bushra Bibib, who was accompanying him stayed in the car outside the NAB office.

Reports quoting sources said that Imran Khan told the NAB officials that the NAB had already received the “AlQadir Trust’s records”. He said the record of orders related to the £190 million was with the cabinet division, and he did not have access to NCA's records. The NAB team, however, asked Imran Khan to submit the records of all donors of the AlQadir University as well as the donations he has made himself. The NAB team also sought record of the AlQadir University's affiliation with Punjab Higher Education and the trust deed between the trust and company of all the accused. Later, Imran Khan left for Lahore.
