Karachi: The Supreme Court sought a report from the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman in a matter pertaining to illegal allotment of a park’s land, in the Al-Habib Cooperative Housing Society, KDA Scheme 33, to some private persons and directed him to look into the conduct of the investigating officer (IO) in the case.
A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed also directed the NAB chief to take disciplinary action against the IO and also compensate the affected people after recovering their money from the accused persons.
It also observed that the IO, Ausaf Talpur, appeared unaware of the matter and could not answer numerous questions asked by the bench which were about basic information.
The CJP expressed his surprise over the fact that the IO was even unaware of the status of their bail and also made no efforts to arrest the accused. Apparently he was allowing them to approach the court for bail.
Besides, the NAB authorities also made no efforts to file an application in the court for the cancellation of the bail, he observed.
