KARACHI: The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Saturday issued a notice to Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader and Chairman Karachi Water and Sewerage Board (KWSB) Sharjeel Inam Memon in a case relating to the approval of an allegedly bogus tender.

The application against Memon, filed by former chief engineer KWSB, Abdul Raheem Khatri, alleged that the provincial minister had okayed the bogus tender of a "greater sewerage plan".

Khatri moreover alleged that he was sacked for opposing the tender's approval and maintained that only the provincial chief minister had the authority to order his firing.

The ex-KWSB chief engineer also alleged that the tender was given to a company named Mohammad Ayub and Brothers by copying his signatures, adding that he had not signed off on the tender.

Subsequently, the SHC issued notices to Memon among others party to the case to appear in court on July 24.
