Hearing of graft case against former KDA DG put off till Jan 22

An accountability court (AC) on Saturday adjourned the hearing of a graft case till January 22 against former Karachi Development Authority (KDA) director general Nasir Abbas and KDA’s charged parking incharge Ubaid Ahmed Khan.

Nasir Abbas and Ubaid Ahmed Khan were in attendance. The court was informed that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had prepared a corruption reference against the two accused and it had been sent to the NAB chairman for necessary approval.

The court directed the investigation officer (IO) not to delay the submission of the corruption reference against the two accused. The court ordered him to file the reference at the next hearing.

The IO said on behalf of the anti-graft agency that proofs of corruption had been gathered against Nasir Abbas and Ubaid Ahmed Khan who were accused of transferring dozens of plots to different parties on the basis of fake documents.

The accused had also converted the residential plots into commercial plots in the area of Gulistan-e-Jauhar, he said.

Besides, former KDA director general Nasir Abbas illegally set up marriage halls and petrol pumps and earned billions of rupees, he added. The IO said key accused Nasir Abbas also was involved in misuse of his authority as the director general and earned huge sums by auctioning government lands and plots.

The FIA arrested Nasir Abbas on September 16 over fraud charges. The arrest was made by the Anti-Human Trafficking Circle of the FIA as the former KDA chief was accused of obtaining two Pakistani passports through mis-declaration and concealment of facts, posing to be a businessman instead of a government servant.
