ISLAMABAD – The newly installed federal government has started the legal process to bring Farah Khan back to Pakistan from the United Arab Emirates.

The development was confirmed by Federal Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb who said that a probe has been initiated to unfold the bank account details of four people employed at the PTI Central Secretariat.

Authorities will reportedly approach international banks to get details about alleged foreign accounts held by PTI Chief. Federal Investigation Agency and the Federal Bureau of Revenue would then act as per the law.

The PML-N leader mentioned that tax returns and sources of income of former Prime Minister Imran Khan will also undergo scrutiny.

Earlier, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) started investigations against Farah Khan in money laundering and income beyond means cases.

The antigraft watchdog claimed that funds amounting to Rs847 million have been transferred to Farhat Shahzadi — alias Farah Khan – account during the last three years, which does not commensurate with her stated account profile. It also added that these credits were received in Farah Khan’s personal account and withdrawn immediately within a short time period.
