Ahad Cheema Caretaker

LAHORE: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has given a clean chit to Ahad Cheema, Adviser to Caretaker Prime Minister Anwar-ul-Haq Kakar, in assets beyond sources of income reference on Monday.

In its report submitted to an Accountability Court (AC) in Lahore on Cheema’s acquittal application, the NAB has said that there are no grounds for filing a reference against him since all his assets were proportionate to his income.

It is further written in the report that Cheema’s alleged benamidars made assets from their personal income, and that the petitioner had nothing to do with them.

Furthermore, the report says, Cheema provided complete record of his income and profits to the bureau during reinvestigation, and when that record was checked, it proved to be accurate.

The NAB has requested the AC to give its judgement on Cheema’s acquittal plea as per law. – INP
