37 lawmakers under investigation over abuse of power

Pakistan Today

Punjab Anti-Corruption Establishment Director-General Gohar Nafees has said that the organisation will look into the activities of 37 politicians who are suspected of corruption.
Nafees, who chaired a meeting of the anti-corruption body on Monday, said that certain MPAs and MNAs have been occupying government land through illegal means.
“Some MPAs and MNAs have also allegedly damaged the national kitty by carrying out fraudulent activities in different projects,” Nafees said.
Nafees added that the investigation would look into the activities of several Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders, including Rana Sanaullah, Rana Mashhood Ahmad Khan, Khawaja Asif, and Rana Mubashir.
Other politicians who will be investigated include Malik Mohammad Afzal Hinjra, Riaz Goraya, Mian Zulfiqar, Malik Ibadullah Khan, Sohail Shaukat Butt, Mohammad Ajmal Hinjra, Mian Riaz, Rana Muhammad Azeem, Ashraf Abbas Dogar, Sheikh Rohail Asghar, and Ghazali Saleem Butt.
A day earlier, former PML-N leader Malik Abdul Ghaffar Dogar had been arrested in Multan for fraud, causing damage to the national kitty, and presenting forged documents.
At the time, PML-N Punjab Secretary-General Rana Sanaullah had strongly condemned the move, claiming that that the director-general of the anti-corruption wing should be “ashamed of himself”.
