ISLAMABAD - The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has taken notice of alleged corruption and delay in completion of Peshawar Metro Bus project.

NAB chairman Justice (r) Javed Iqbal ordered  Bureau’s KP DG an investigation into the matter.

The anti-graft watchdog said that the cost of the project has increased from Rs49 billion to Rs64 billion but the project hasn’t completed.

NAB will determine those responsible for the delay in the completion of the project and the responsibility of increase in cost.

On the other hand, the anti-graft agency has also initiated the probe against three key departments of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa after the PTI-led government completed its tenure.

Corruption worth billions of rupees in the biometric system has also been revealed in KP.
