KARACHI (Web Desk) – Federal Investigation Agency Sindh Director General Shahid Hayat has said that there were several ghost employees appointed in the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation who were drawing salaries sitting at home while their families are also on the payroll.

He presented an employee of KMC, Saleem Khan, who confessed that 21 members of his family are receiving salaries from KMC including his 64-year old mother-in-law.


"It was our duty to collect monthly income from different towns and submit to Director Education Mansoor Mirza who then used to divide the money among high ranking officials," he said.


Mr Hayat said that FIA is also investigating senior officials of KMC regarding the matter.


To a question regarding BBC report on MQM, he said that the government is investigating the matter as all the names mentioned in the report are outside Pakistan.
