“I am a low profile man,” says Qaim Ali Shah
KARACHI: Former chief minister of Sindh Qaim Ali Shah claimed on Thursday that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has been “directed to catch big fishes, but I am low profile man.”
Talking to media, Shah said the anti-graft watchdog sent him three notices but they were not based on truth. “Documents failed to prove me guilty.”
It has been reported these days that NAB has received directions from ‘higher authorities’ to catch big fishes, “but I am a small man”, claimed Shah.
The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Feb 7 had extended the pre-arrest bail of the Pakistan Peoples Party leader until March 21, in a case related to land allotment in Malir.
The Karachi chapter of the NAB had launched four investigations against Sindh government officers and others for illegally allotting 307 acres of land in the Malir riverbed to various beneficiaries.
According to a statement, 307 acres in the Malir riverbed were illegally allotted to various beneficiaries in violation of law and rules by way of fresh allotment and exchange after squeezing the boundaries of Malir river.
Misuse of authority allegedly by officials of the provincial government along with various beneficiaries and frontmen caused Rs15.7 loss to the national exchequer.
