SUNDAY TIMES KARACHI:The high court heard the case pertaining to the issuance of a fake call-up notice to a citizen.

NAB Director General Sindh, who appeared in the hearing, asked by the SHC Chief Justice Ahmed Ali M Shaikh, “Are you witnesses what is going on here?”

Justice Shaikh expressed outrage and remarked, “It shows that NAB does not keep complete records of its actions.”

“Shouldn’t we hold an inquiry into this matter by NAB chairman,” he said.

While censuring the NAB official, the judge questioned the performance of the institution despite the provision of chance every time to appear with full preparation. Justice Shaikh asked the official to visit court for reviewing the performance of officers.

“We don’t want damage reputation of any national institution,” the judge said.

NAB counsel argued, “NAB has investigated into this matter and it found that the notice was not issued by the anti-corruption watchdog. A telephone call was made from registrar office of an accountability court in Hyderabad after the issuance of call-up notice.”

According to the NAB report, an investigation officer was not authorised to directed issue a call-up notice to the accused person. The report also stated that police was also probing into it.
