The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has announced to file two references against the officials of Lahore Development Authority and the Public Health Engineering Cooperative Housing Society.
As per the details, the Lahore division of the NAB will file the reference against the officials.
The details further said that the reference will be filed against the LDA and a housing society for their alleged involvement in commercialization fee fraud and illicit allotment of plots, respectively.
“The executive board of NAB, Lahore, decided to file a supplementary reference against (10 or so) LDA officials for misusing authority and gaining illegal advantages by corrupt means which caused financial loss to the national exchequer worth millions,” said a bureau spokesman.
As per charges by the anti-corruption watchdog, the officials of Lahore Development Authority embezzled the Punjab government funds in the name of commercialization fees which incurred a loss of millions to national exchequer.
Moreover, in the case of Public Health Engineering Cooperative Housing Society, its former president Hafiz Sarfraz Anwar and former general secretary Malik Sajjad Haider purportedly tricked the public by allotting a number of commercial plots through illegal transfer of plots mortgaged with LDA, the NAB official said.
