The National Accountability Bureau has summoned former special assistant to prime minister Imran Khan on accountability Mirza Shahzad Akbar on October 21.
Akbar has been called on by NAB in the case pertaining to possessing assets beyond means.
In June this year, a news agency alleged that Akbar had formed a group and bought properties worth “billions of rupees” under the garb of making the accountability process better. Akbar, however, denied the allegations and issued a clarification stating that the news published against him by a news agency was “baseless”. He also warned media publications to avoid publishing such news, else he would take legal action. Akbar is allegedly living in London following his abrupt departure to Dubai in April after his name was removed from the stop list on the Islamabad High Court’s orders.
It should be noted that the former aide tendered his resignation to PM Imran Khan in January this year.
Akbar was later placed on the stop list by the Federal Investigation Agency in April, following the ouster of Khan’s government.
