NAB distances itself from death of Sargodha university's professor
ISLAMABAD - The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Saturday said it has no role in the demise of Professor Mian Javed of Sargodha University's Lahore Campus.

Denying the media reports, the NAB said that Mian Javed was sent to jail two months ago on Oct 23, 2018 on judicial custody in good health condition, a press release said.

The bureau said Javed had died in Services Hospital, Lahore in judicial custody and the chairman NAB has issued strict orders that a dead accused must not be handcuffed which is being strictly adhered.

The anti-corruption watchdog was making sincere efforts to eradicate corruption from the country and the NAB's performance has acknowledged by reputed national and international organizations from time to time, it added.

Despite clarification by NAB, baseless propaganda against NAB aimed at damaging NAB's image and reputation.

Expressing dismay, the NAB has said that each step which has taken in accordance with law and the Constitution will continue unabated. The NAB strictly adhered to avoid breaching self-respect of accused persons.

Earlier, it was claimed by local media that Javed died of heart attack while in the custody of the NAB in a case pertaining to setting up a fake campus of the university in Lahore.

On Friday, pictures of the handcuffed body of the professor outraged the social media users. The users have lambasted the authorities and termed the pictures tantamount to disrespect of a dead body.
