NAB summons PM in-waiting Imran Khan on August 7 in helicopter misuse case


PESHAWAR : The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Friday summoned Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Prime Minister in-waiting Imran Khan on August 7 in an ongoing inquiry against his alleged misuse of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government’s helicopters.

“Imran used two helicopters belonging to the KP government for a total of 74 hours,” NAB officials said.

“Statements of KP CM Pervaiz Khattak and aviation authorities in the case have been recorded,” the NAB officials said.

The PTI chairman is accused of illegally using an Mi-17 and an Ecureuil helicopter belonging to the KP government for a total of 74 hours, causing a loss of Rs2.1 million to the national exchequer.
Earlier on July 18, Imran had sought time to appear before NAB as he “was busy with election campaigning”.

On January 29 this year, the former KP government spent millions of rupees on Imran’s use of the provincial government’s helicopters.

NAB chairman Justice (retired) Javed Iqbal in February directed the bureau to launch a probe against the PTI chief and then-KP chief minister Pervaiz Khattak over unofficial use of two government helicopters by misusing authority.

Khattak has already appeared before NAB in the past regarding the case.
