PESHAWAR: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, on Friday arrested Syed Qasim Shah, former sub-registrar, Peshawar, for alleged involvement in registering deeds of TB Association plots illegally.

The NAB through a communiqué said that during the course of investigation it was discovered that two plots measuring four kanals and five marlas and five kanals and eight marlas in Peshawar city were allotted to TB Association at concessional rates.

It said that the plots were allotted to TB Association on the condition that the property, in question, would only be used by TB association and would not be transferred to any other person in any manner.
