Narowal Sports City case: Ahsan Iqbal’s physical remand extended for seven days

ISLAMABAD (DNN – Dekh News Netwrok – 13 Jan, 2020) – Accountability court on Monday has approved 7-day physical remand of former federal minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader Ahsan Iqbal in Narowal Sports City case.

During the hearing, the court has directed National Accountability Bureau (NAB) investigators to complete the inquiry as early as possible as they will not get remand of the PML-N leader in future.

On December 23, NAB had arrested Ahsan Iqbal over his involvement in embezzlement of Narowal Sports City project funds.

The anti-graft watchdog body alleged that Iqbal had illegally initiated a project of Rs 3 billion in Narowal, causing a loss worth billions to the national exchequer.

NAB claimed to have received a complaint that the Narowal Sports City was constructed at a cost of approximately Rs6 billion, which was a violation of rules.
