PESHAWAR (PAK TIMES): The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has asked Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan to appear before the bureau on August 7 in connection with an inquiry against the alleged use of KPK government’s helicopters for his private visits.
PTI Chief Imran Khan has been accused of using the KPK government’s helicopter – MI-17 and Ecureuil — for at least 74 hours for his personal visits.
NAB had already recorded the statements of former CM KPK Pervez Khattak and Civil Aviation Authority along with four senior bureaucrats including three administrative secretaries in the case.
NAB had initiated an inquiry against the former CM KPK previously to determine if he had the authority to hand the government’s choppers over for the non-governmental usage.
According to the NAB’s press release, PTI Chief Imran Khan paid Rs2.1 million for using the government’s property, however; if he had used the choppers of the private company, it would have cost him Rs1m and Rs1.2m for an hour for Mi-17, and between Rs0.5m and Rs0.6m for the Ecureuil.
However, the chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran Khan has claimed that the KPK government’s choppers were not used by him for the personal visits.
