Shah is accused of alleged misuse of power in the Nooriabad Power project. The anti-graft buster filed the reference against Syed Murad Ali Shah on Tuesday.
The approver has revealed that CM Sindh awarded the contract for the transmission line of the Nooriabad Power project by violating the law. Shah was controlling the bidding of the power project, Hussain said and added that NEPRA member Mehmoodul Hassan Naqvi was also aware of it.
He said that Mehmoodul Hassan Naqvi was later made a member of the procurement committee.
It stated that public funds worth billions have been embezzled for Nooriabad Power Company and Sindh Transmission and Dispatch Company.
