NAB Chairman Aftab Sultan resigns amid political turmoil

ISLAMABAD – National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Aftab Sultan has submitted his resignation to the prime minister over political cases, it emerged on Tuesday.

The decorated bureaucrat was appointed as head of the country’s anti-graft watchdog last year in July. Sultan sent his resignation to the prime minister as he was said to be under pressure over political cases.

Speaking with a local news outlet, Mr Sultan said he stepped down from the coveted post after being told to do certain things, which he defined as unacceptable for him. He mentioned leaving the office in a positive approach.

Reports quoting sources claimed that former NAB chief was forced to lodge cases against political leaders, which prompted him to quit.

Sultan replaced Justice (r) Javed Iqbal as chairman of the National Accountability Bureau in July last year. He previously served as head of the Intelligence Bureau and relinquished from his post in 2018.
