The Anti-Corruption Establishment of the Punjab government on Monday decided to launch an investigation into the activities of 37 politicians. Presiding over a meeting, anti-corruption Punjab’s director-general Gohar Nafees said that the department will also probe existing MPAs and MNAs as some of them have been accused of occupying government lands through illegal means. “Some MPAs and MNAs have also allegedly damaged the national kitty by carrying out fraudulent activities in different projects,” Nafees said. “To that end, the Anti-Corruption Establishment Punjab has approved an investigation into the activities of several PML-N leaders, including Rana Sanaullah, Rana Mashhood Ahmad Khan, Khawaja Asif, and Rana Mubashir. According to sources, other politicians who have been included in the anti-corruption establishment’s list include Malik Mohammad Afzal Hinjra, Malik Mohammad Ajmal Hinjra, Mian Riaz, Ibadullah Khan, Rana Muhammad Azeem, Ashraf Abbas Dogar, Riaz Goraya, Mian Zulfiqar, Sheikh Rohail Asghar, Sohail Shaukat Butt, and Ghazali Saleem Butt. “The cases are being registered in the light of concrete evidence. Those involved are being arrested,” Gohar Nafees said. A day ago, the anti-corruption wing in Multan arrested former PML-N leader and MPA Malik Abdul Ghaffar Dogar from his home. He was accused of fraud and presenting fake documents. Meanwhile, The Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) Punjab on Monday arrested another PML-N leader Ahsan Raza Khan on the charges of constructing an illegal commercial market and a housing scheme. ACE Punjab in its continued action against the corrupt elements nabbed Ahsan Raza Khan, who was wanted in two cases of corruption. The PML-N leader is accused of building a market on the land of government hospital Kanganpur and also constructed a housing society. Both the commercial market and the housing scheme are illegal and not approved by the building control department. Earlier on November 10, Punjab’s Anti-corruption Establishment (ACE) officials had arrested Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader and former mayor of Sargodha, Aslam Naveed, over charges of ‘abuse of power’ which causes financial loss to the national exchequer. A case had been registered against seven accused including Sargodha’s ex-mayor Aslam Naveed and officials of Tehsil Municipal Administration (TMA) and provincial revenue department. According to ACE Punjab, the action had been taken over the alleged abuse of power by the accused persons which resulted in the financial loss to the national exchequer.
