The PAKISTAN Tehreek-i-Insaaf (PTI) Chairman, Imran Khan stands before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in the bureau’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) office at Peshawar on Tuesday in the case about the alleged misuse of the provincial government’s helicopters during his past tenure in KP.
A questionnaire prepared by NAB with 15 queries was handed to Khan and his lawyers. The questionnaire needs to be completed within 15 days, according to NAB officials.
The officials said that Imran Khan was”interrogated within the NAB office in connection to the case for more than one hour”.
tight security measures were put in place around NAB’s Peshawar office. Security was also tightened in Hayatabad and surrounding areas. Earlier, the NAB had released a notice to Imran Khan on July 11, calling on his presence before a combined investigation team on July 18.
However, due to Khan’s involvement in the elections, his law firm Babar Awan and Associates had submitted an application asking for more time which was accepted.
In February, after taking notice of the helicopter issue when it was highlighted by print and electronic media, NAB had taken its own first action against Khan and KP Chief Minister Pervez Khattak for allegedly misusing official helicopters for private purposes.
NAB Chairman retired Justice Javed Iqbal had stated to the bureau’s KP director general to conduct an inquiry against CM Khattak and Khan over 74-hours unofficial use of two government helicopters – Mi-17 and Ecureuil – by misusing authority.
