LAHORE: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has registered a case against a former Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB) chairman and several other officials for their alleged role in irregularities in the sale of urban properties.

According to the FIA, a case has been registered against former ETPB chairman Asif Hashmi, deputy secretary Munir Ahmed, administrator Sheikh Asif, Inspector Waheed Khan, former deputy administrator Rana Tariq Javed and private developer Wasim Suhail for causing a loss of millions of rupees to the exchequer in the sale of urban properties.

The FIA has launched a probe into alleged irregularities in the sale of urban properties by the ETPB on the direction of the Supreme Court.

The board has also written to the Auditor General of Pakistan (AGP) office, requesting it to first convene a ‘mandatory’ departmental accounts committee (DAC) of the ministry on its (AGP’s) observations.
