Sources within Services & General Administration Department told ARY News that more officers in the finance department are likely to be transferred.

It should be noted that massive corruption scandal was exposed in Balochistan’s finance department when National Accountability Bureau (NAB) recovered a ‘treasure’ of local and foreign currency worth Rs. 630 million and a sizable quantity of gold from the residence of former finance secretary Balochistan, Mushtaq Raisani.

NAB had got a 14-day remand of Raisani after producing him before an accountability court.

During the investigation,  former secretary finance Balochistan Mushtaq Raisani had revealed the names of 11 people involved in the corruption scam with him.

Director General NAB Balochistan Major General (retd.) Tariq Mehmood has said that it was unlikely that Raisani was working alone adding that other could also be involved with him.
