The Nation

NAB Lahore has vouchsafed two references against officials of the Lahore Development Authority (LDA) and the Public Health Engineering Cooperative Housing Society; for their alleged involvement in commercialisation, fee fraud and illicit allotment of plots respectively. As per NAB charges, the LDA officials embezzled the government funds in the name of commercialisation fees. “The executive board of NAB Lahore decided to file a supplementary reference against (10 or so) LDA officials for misusing authority and gaining illegal advantages by corrupt means which caused financial loss to the national exchequer worth millions,” said a bureau spokesman.
