ISLAMABAD: Zahir Shah has been appointed as the new deputy chairman of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for a period of three years by President Arif Alvi, Geo News reported Tuesday.
Chairman NAB Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal had sent the name of Shah to the President House to have him appointed as the anti-graft body's deputy chairman, sources said earlier.

The federal government had appointed Asghar as deputy chairman in April 2019 for a period of three years.
