Embezzlement of Rs.140m: NAB files reference against XEN

Staff Reporter :

QUETTA: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) filed a reference against the executive engineer (XEN) of the Communication and Works Departement Balochistan. The XEN had inflicted a financial loss of Rs. 140m to the national exchequer.

The accused Saeed Ahmed Tanoli had accumulated assets beyond his know income through fraudulent means. NAB investigation team made tireless efforts to trace the properties of the accused, Spokesman NAB said in a statement issued to the press on Tuesday evening. The accused properties traced out in Quetta and Islamabad and excessive transactions from banks in Quetta and other parts of the country.

The accused has however obtained bail-before arrest from the court

Subsequently, NAB Balochistan filed a reference against the accused after getting concrete evidence of the latter’s involvement in corruption. The accused has however obtained bail-before arrest from the court.

The Balochistan government implements its public sector development program (PSDP) through the C&W department in the province. The department is entrusted with the task to construct roads, school buildings, and health centers across the province. The present government has allocated substantial funds for the C&W department to construct roads, schools, and health centers in the province.

NAB steps up efforts

NAB Balochistan has expedited efforts to expose and arrest the elements involved in corruption cases in the province. This reference has come days after the NAB arrested three accused involved in Rs. 400m corruption in the purchase of medicines for government-run hospitals in Balochistan.

The accused inflicted financial losses to the national exchequer in the purchase of life-saving drugs for hospitals. In Balochistan, government hospitals paint a bleak picture despite the allocation of over Rs. 32 billion during the budget for the financial year 2020-21.
