ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has removed 23 officers from service on charges of misconduct and negligence, while 32 others have been awarded penalties.

According to a NAB spokesman, the disciplinary action has been initiated against a total of 85 officers on the orders of NAB chairman retired Justice Javed Iqbal.

“The NAB chairman is of the view that self-accountability is very necessary towards adoption of ‘Accountability for All’. NAB is absolutely committed to eradication of corruption from the country across the board,” the spokesman said.

NAB suspended with immediate effect Mohammad Ramzan Khan, deputy director, NAB Lahore, on charges of inefficiency and negligence in performance of official duties.

An inquiry has been ordered for completion of codal formalities, including an opportunity given to Ramzan Khan to defend charges against him as per law.

Kashif Mumtaz Gondal, deputy director, Sukkur, has been suspended for three months on the charges of misconduct, and a formal inquiry has been started against him.

It has been learnt that a number of complaints were lodged against Mr Gondal not only with NAB but also with police and a case was being heard against him in the court of Justice of Peace in Mandi Bahauddin.

Mr Gondal is said to be one of the most ‘powerful’ officers of NAB having links with top politicians and bureaucrats and was allegedly involved in getting ‘undue’ favours by misusing his office.
