Lehri is accused of corruption, misuse of authority and the illegal appointment of government lands. He had submitted an application for pre-arrest bail which was rejected by the high court. He was arrested by the NAB authorities from the premises of the court.
Later, he was presented in an accountability court where NAB authorities requested for his judicial remand, which was duly accepted and he was sent to District Jail Quetta.
Lehri was the ‘nazim’ (mayor) of Quetta from 2005-2009. He is accused of misusing his authority during his tenure in the allotment of government lands which caused losses worth millions to the national exchequer.
