Rs74.4m transactions from mysterious bank account of Sialkot man

SIALKOT: Another case of mysterious bank activity emerged on Saturday as transactions of millions were found to have been made from the account of a resident of Sialkot.

Muzakkir Hussain had gone to open an account in a private bank when it was revealed there was another account under his name in Lahore.

According to a 75-page-long statement obtained from the bank, transactions of Rs74.4 million were made from his account that also received hefty sums from Karachi and Swat.

The bank has released a letter verifying the incorrect use of the account.

Hussain has admitted his suspicions that his account might have been used for terrorist activities.

A series of mysterious deposits such as this have surfaced in recent days, as the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) continues its probe in a high-profile money laundering case involving fictitious ‘benami’ bank accounts. On October 10, Sarwat Zehra, a resident of Karachi’s Korangi area found that millions were deposited in her bank account when the Federal Board of Revenue issued a tax notice to her.

Earlier, the FIA found an account in a private bank in Karachi which contained Rs173 million belonged to an unemployed youth, Asad Ali, from Jhang.

In another case, a mysterious bank deposit made an unsuspecting man from

Hyderabad an overnight millionaire. Pardeep Kumar, a driver by profession, was stunned to find Rs 49,954,432 listed on his ATM slip when he withdrew his salary on October 8.

The agency traced a trade account of a student from Larkana with millions of rupees, a week after it found Rs 2 billion in a food vendor’s bank account.
