Iqbal’s indictment in NSC case deferred

Pakistan Today

ISLAMABAD: An accountability court in Islamabad on Monday deferred the indictment of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) secretary general Ahsan Iqbal in a case pertaining to the Narowal Sports City (NSC) project.
Last month, the court had decided to indict Iqbal in the reference on December 7.
The process was postponed after an anti-graft prosecutor failed to appear before the court. Meanwhile, the PML-N leader and the four other accused were present.
Adjourning the hearing, the court announced to indict the accused on December 22.
The agency filed the reference against Iqbal last month in the accountability court, accusing the PML-N stalwart of misuse of authority and “illegally enhancing the scope of [the] project from Rs34.75 million to Rs3 billion”.
He was arrested by the bureau in December last year from the anti-corruption watchdog’s Rawalpindi chapter’s office where he had appeared to record his statement in the case.
