LAHORE: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Saturday initiated an inquiry against owners of Khayaban-i-Amin Housing Society, Lahore, after receiving numerous complaints of not handing over of homes, plots and flats to the owners despite receiving complete payments worth Rs221.65 million. The News has learnt that NAB Lahore Director General Shahzad Saleem chaired a Regional Board Meeting (RBM) on Saturday in which the said inquiry was authorised.

NAB had received 287 complaints against owners of Khayaban-i-Amin, alleging fraud with the public. Earlier, NAB Lahore had received 223 complaints, whereas, 64 new complainants had approached NAB Lahore seeking help against the society.

Meanwhile, another inquiry was authorised against Dr M Arshad, Director (Education) Punjab Workers Welfare Board (PWWB), officers/officials of Punjab Workers Welfare Board, and Aurangzeb Enterprises, Ahmed Traders, Amin & Sons, Javed Enterprises and others.s

The inquiry has been initiated after the information gathered by the Bureau about misuse of the authority in procurement of substandard uniforms for PWWB Schools in the year 2012-13. The complaint proceedings revealed that the subject persons did not allow all willing private companies to participate in the tender proceedings for summer/ winter uniforms for the PWWB schools for the year 2013-14.

Moreover, the rates approved in tenders were 130% higher than the tender received in the previous year 2012-13, which allegedly caused a loss of Rs100 million to the Board. The contract was awarded to blue-eyed contractors. An Inquiry had been authorised to dig into the allegation.
