NAB starts inquiry against two generals, four brigadiers

16 November, 2012

RAWALPINDI/ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has initiated inquiry against two generals and four brigadiers on charges of corruption in DHA Islamabad.

The military officers are accused of signing and implementing three controversial contracts with Bahria Town which resulted in a loss of Rs 100 billion to the DHA and as many as 150,000 people lost their savings. Those who lost their lifetime savings include serving and former military officers, JCOs, NCOs and civilians, said Lt Col (r) M Tariq Kamal in a statement issued on Thursday.

He said that the internal accountability system of defence forces was getting ineffective which has brought a bad name to army as senior military officers are being dragged in courts. He said that only way to save reputation of the institution was to introduce accountability system in defence forces which will also deter servicemen from indulging in any wrongdoing.

Irregularities in the defence forces should be taken seriously and resolved before any public uproar or involvement of NAB, the Public Accounts Committee, media or any other organisation, he recommended.

End.
