ISLAMABAD: A contractor who is working on the Lahore Orange Line Metro Train project has confessed to irregularities in a separate matter and agreed to return the money involved.

The contractor, Amir Latif, who was arrested by the National Accountability Bureau last month in a separate matter, requested NAB to accept his plea bargain, under which he would return nearly Rs250 million.

The request was accepted during NAB’s executive board meeting on Wednesday.

According to a NAB spokesperson, the bureau was investigating a case against Pakistan Public Works Department’s former superintending engineer Mian Masood Akhtar, ex-executive engineers Rana Saleem Akhtar and Ch Hassan Akhtar, former assistant executive engineer Pervaiz Iqbal Mahmood and former sub-engineer Ejaz Hussain, as well as Amir Latif, who owns the Ch. Abdul Latif & Co construction company.
