ISLAMABAD: President Dr Arif Alvi in consultation with National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Javed Iqbal has appointed the bureau’s Director General (Operations) Zahir Shah as deputy chairman of the anti-graft watchdog, said a notification issued by the law ministry on Tuesday.
Mr Shah has been serving with NAB for almost two decades and has held key positions in the organisation.
NAB’s former deputy chairman Hussain Asghar resigned last week.
A source close to Mr Asghar said he was not feeling comfortable while working for the bureau. He was appointed deputy chairman in April 2019.
Attempts were made to contact Mr Asghar for comments, but he was not available.
