RAWALPINDI - The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Monday arrested two former officials, Wasim Ajmal and Qamar-ul-Islam of the Saaf Pani Company in the scam.

Wasim Ajmal was a former CEO of the Saaf Pani Company while Qamra-ul-Islam is a PML-N leader and contending general elections 2018 against Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan from NA 59.

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has condemned Raja's arrest, saying "the arrest of PML-N ticket holder during election campaign is unfortunate".

Earlier, the former Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif suspended Waseem Ajmal and Chief of Contracts and Procurement Shabnam, while terminating the services of General Manager Project Services Col (retd) Tahir Maqbool.

He believed that these officials had been negligent in their duties of rolling out the chief minister’s much-touted clean water project.

“Those who cannot deliver have no right to stay in their jobs and get six-digit salaries. Perks and privileges have to be matched by action,” he said on his Twitter account.
