An accountability court on Wednesday ordered the forensic of bank accounts of the accused in a massive 3.2 billion pension scandal.
In the budget crisis, 17 suspects had petitioned the court for forensic investigations of their bank accounts.
The court adjourned further hearing of the NAB reference until January 04.
The accused who had given statements in this regard were directed to have their bank accounts forensically examined by the court earlier. “The accounts were opened in our name without our information,” the accused pleaded.
Aamir Isran, the accused, was arrested on his return from the United States, according to the National Accountability Bureau, which testified in court. He was employed at the department of planning and development.
The accused is alleged to have been involved in the pension scandal. The national exchequer allegedly suffered damages from the accused totaling 3.2 billion rupees.
In an investigation into alleged corruption, the accountability watchdog had traced nine more fake bank accounts used for the embezzlement of pension funds by officials.
Along with finding new fake bank accounts, the NAB also tracked down a scheme to steal billions of dollars worth of public money via “fake pension (commutation) bills.”
