Dozens of ghost workers uncovered in PIA
LAHORE (Web Desk) – The intelligence wing of Pakistan International Airlines on Tuesday uncovered dozens of ghost workers at different stations of the national flag carrier.


Reports said these ghost workers were costing the airlines millions of rupees and might be weeded out. They are not attending their duties, but just drawing hefty salaries.


Earlier, several PIA employees were found possessing fake academic credentials.


Also, the academic credentials of Faisal Younis, the elder brother of former fast bowler and Pakistan cricket team head coach Waqar Younis, for intermediate and bachelors were reportedly found to be forged.


Faisal Younis, who is a pilot in the national flag carrier, joined PIA back in 2003 and had a commercial pilot’s licence at the time. He has been operating PIA airbus these days.


Since a number of lawmakers had been disqualified for possessing fake credentials, the National Assembly’s Public Accounts Committee is of the view that such a crime on behalf of a working pilot cannot be overlooked.


Faisal Younis has not yet been disqualified as pilot, but his seniority has been curtailed by three years.


According to Civil Aviation Authority official Muhammad Ali Gardezi, Faisal Younis’s pilot licence is not fake, but his FA and BA credentials are.
