KARACHI - The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) filed a reference against Pak Saarzameen Party Chief Mustafa Kamal in a case of the alleged illegal allotment of land.

The reference was filed in a Karachi accountability court on Saturday regarding 5,500 square metres of land on the sea side.

Besides Kamal, Sindh Director General Building Control Authority Iftikhar Kaimani, Fazlur rehman, Mumtaz Haider and Nazir Zardari were also involved in the alleged illegal activity, as per the reference.

According to anti-graft body, the land had been leased to shop owners and hawkers in 1980 and then in 2005, the DJ Builders acquired the land on a lease.

NAB alleged in the reference that the former city mayor was involved in allowing the construction company to build a skyscraper on the land.

The reference was filed on a complaint lodged by Transparency International; PSP denied the charges on social media and vowed to defend the position of its leader.
