NAB Balochistan probing five ministries
21 January, 2013
QUETTA: NAB Balochistan, which is probing corruption in various ministries of the provincial government, has extended its investigation to five more ministries.
According to media reports, earlier inquiries into the corruption and irregularities of eleven ministries have been completed and the report was sent to the NAB chairman for further action, while the investigation into five more ministries has now been taken up after the seizure of their records.
Sources said that ministries of education, health, social welfare and others are included among those being probed and their ministers might be arrested after clearance from the higher authorities.
All homework has been completed and after completion of investigation of the record of the five ministers, formal record will be handed over to NAB chairman. As soon as NAB gives formal permission, action will be taken against the five ministers.
Sources said that there has been massive corruption in all sorts of funds in Balochistan and ministers plundered national resources and did nothing for the poor masses. After the imposition of governor's rule, it has become easy for the accountability agency to get all the record, decipher it and reach to the corrupt elements.
