NAB questions Awan in Nandipur project case

ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Rawalpindi, has grilled the Adviser to Prime Minister on Parliamentary Affair, Babar Awan, in a Nandipur Power project case for delaying the project during the tenure of PPP government when he was a law minister.

According to sources, Rawalpindi NAB Investigation team has questioned him for three hours about his alleged role in delaying the project that caused a loss of billions of rupees to the national exchequer.

However, sources said he denied all the allegations about his role saying that it has nothing to do with the project.

It is to be mentioned here that in a meeting of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) last year said that the billions of rupees loss sustained due to file for vetting of the project stuck up in the Law Ministry during the tenure of Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani as a prime minister and Babar Awan was law minister.

It is worth mentioning here that on the instructions of the Supreme Court a commission was formed, and, in its report, it was stated that delay in commissioning of the project caused a loss of billions of rupees to the national exchequer, and NAB on the basis of the commission report recorded the statements of the concerned ministries, ex-prime ministers, ex-federal minister, Judicial officials of the Law Ministry and ex-judges and now the evidence be collected to proceed for the criminal case so the cases still at the inquiry stage.
