PM Rana Mashhood faces NAB investigation LAHORE: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has announced an investigation into allegations of corruption against Punjab Minister for Sports and Education Rana Mashhood.
A NAB official told Dawn that the bureau had decided to investigate the allegations that Mr Mashhood had received money for party (PML-N) fund from Asim Malik, owner of a visa consultancy firm, at his house a few years ago.
They claimed that NAB had been asked by Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif to investigate the ‘video scandal’.
“Since the Federal Investigation Agency had given a clean chit to Mr Mashhood in this case, the Punjab government is confident that he will be cleared by NAB too,” the sources said.
Mr Mashhood has claimed innocence in the case and announced that he would take legal action against Mr Malik who fled to London after allegedly looting hundreds of people with a promise to send them abroad. He and his wife have been declared proclaimed offenders by the Lahore High Court.
