ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau wants to know details of Pakistan Democratic Movement and JUI-F chief Fazlur Rehman’s assets and source of income.

NAB Khyber Pakhtunkhwa sent the JUI-F chief an asset forma Friday.

Fazl has reportedly been asked to provide details of what he owns, including any inherited property. NAB has given a deadline of December 28. 

The PDM chief also has to give details of his bank accounts, source of income and sold properties, sources said.

Fazl’s family, too, has been asked to give the same details, the source said.

In September, NAB Khyber Pakhtunkhwa had summoned Fazl to answer allegations that he owns assets beyond known sources of income.

In the notice sent to the JUI-F chief, NAB KP had stated that Fazl can be arrested if his answers fail to satisfy officials of the anti-corruption watchdog. 

Illegal sale of government land to JUI-F chief

Earlier this month, media reported that NAB had started investigating a complaint filed against Fazl which says the government transport service illegally sold expensive land to the JUI-F chief at a low price.

In the complaint, it is alleged that the JUI-F chief was given 64 Kanal government-owned land after former prime minister Nawaz Sharif closed the general transport service department, a source in the bureau said.

The NAB source said land worth Rs14 million was illegally given to the JUI-F supremo for Rs4 million.
