NAB opens an investigation on Bushra Bibi’s friend Farah Khan.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has opened an investigation against Farah Khan, a friend of former first lady Bushra Bibi, for allegedly amassing unlawful assets beyond recognised sources of income, laundering money, and maintaining multiple accounts in the name of enterprises.

Farah Khan

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) moved swiftly against Farhat Shahzadi, also known as Farah Khan, after various reports revealed that her wealth grew during the Imran Khan administration.

Today, the anti-corruption agency announced in a statement that DG NAB Lahore has been instructed to investigate this matter in accordance with the law.

“A large turnover of Rs847 million was discovered in her account over the past three years, which is inconsistent with her reported account profile. According to the statement, these credits were deposited into her personal account and she immediately withdrew them within a short period of time.

According to several media reports, Farah was allegedly linked with assets beyond his legal means.

While scrutinising the income tax filings of Farah Khan, the anti-corruption body allegedly discovered that her assets have expanded dramatically beginning in 2018 for unclear reasons.

In addition, she has travelled regularly to foreign jurisdictions: nine times to the United States and six times to the United Arab Emirates.

Major General (ret.) Syed Mustafa Anwar Hussain, while serving as Pakistan’s ambassador in Jakarta from 2001 to 2002, sold the Pakistan Embassy building at Jakarta for pennies on the dollar through an opaque process and without legal authority.

Thus, the accused caused a loss of $1,32,000,000 to the public treasury. The NAB has filed a referral against the defendants.
