RAWALPINDI: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Saturday finally vacated the girls’ hostel of Rawalpindi Medical College (RMC) and ended the forced occupation, Geo News reported.
According to sources, the bureau has shifted its offices to Islamabad while the accountability courts have been shifted to District Courts Complex in Rawlapindi where the routine work has also kicked off.
NAB has been illegally occupying the hostel since 1999 and has not even paid rent, as a result of which 600 girls students seeking hostel accommodation this year were denied boarding.
The Supreme Court (SC) took notice of the commotion and had directed the NAB to vacate the girls hostel of RMC by the end of August and to pay rent to the RMC authorities.
A three-member bench of the apex court, headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry was hearing the case and the next hearing is fixed for September 17.
