LAHORE: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Thursday arrested two ‘imposters’.

According to the bureau, Muhammad Arshad and Ghulam Rasool tried to get an access to restricted boundaries of the Kasur district jail while introducing themselves as deputy director and personal secretary to the NAB Lahore director, respectively.

The suspects also tried to hoodwink the jail staff by false claims of personal meetings with the DPO and Kasur deputy commissioner.

“Both the suspects wanted to pay an official visit to district jail while impersonating NAB officers to monitor the inside conditions and circumstances of jail premises,” the bureau said, adding the intelligence wing of NAB Lahore’s quick response managed the arrest of the suspects on the spot.

A case has been registered against them under section 186, 170 and 171 of Cr.PC after NAB handed them over to police.
