Corruption worth billions revealed in Sindh coal mines contracts
According to NAB sources, principal secretary Sohail Akbar allegedly gave the contract unlawfully to a company, which was supposed to make coal-based electricity from the mines of Sindh.
Akbar gave the contract to Al-Fatah group on verbal orders from former CM Sindh, NAB added.
They stated the group, instead of generating coal-based electricity, sold coal in the market and making Rs2 billion worth profit.
Principal Secretary has earned pre-arrest bail from the Sindh High Court (SHC) while the NAB has called for the cancellation of bail from the courtroom.
SHC has also stopped interior ministry from issuing passport to the former principal secretary. Akbar is currently the Additional Secretary Establishment.
Meanwhile Qaim Ali Shah has denied making any verbal directions in this esteem.
