KARACHI - The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has summoned PTI Chairman Imran Khan for investigation in a money laundering case. 

The former prime minister has been asked to appear before the investigation team at FIA's Karachi office on October 31 (Monday).

Earlier this month, FIA Banking Circle registered a case against Khan and other PTI leaders in connection with prohibited funding received by his party.

According to the FIR, the Abraaj Group, which is owned by business tycoon Arif Naqvi, allegedly transferred $2.1 million to the PTI account in the branch of a bank situated at Jinnah Avenue in the federal capital.

The federal agency further alleged that Imran Khan-led party also received funds from two bank accounts of Wotan Cricket Club.

The FIA has also booked Sardar Azhar Tariq, Tariq Shafi, and Younis Aamir Kiani in the same case. It also stated that Arif Naqvi submitted a fake affidavit to the ECP in prohibited funding case. 

Some officials of the bank branch have also been named in the FIR over failing to report the authorities concerned about suspicious transactions related to PTI. 

The FIA had launched its probe against the PTI in August this year after the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) had declared in its verdict that the party had received illegal funding.

Announcing ruling on a case filed by disgruntled PTI leader Akbar S Babar in 2014, the top election body said that the Imran Khan-led party also received funds from business tycoon Arif Naqvi and from 34 foreign nationals.

ECP maintained that the party had submitted a fake affidavit about its bank accounts, and it had determined that the party hid 13 bank accounts that it should have declared.
