ISLAMABAD: The assets and bank accounts of Dr Shakeel Afridi and his family have been sealed, DawnNews reported on Friday.

Afridi had allegedly helped to conduct a phony polio vaccination campaign at the behest of the CIA to secure the DNA of Osama bin Laden and his family.

Afridi owned real estate in various localities of Peshawar including Hayatabad, Shami road and Saddar which in total adds up to 15 Canals.

All of his property has now been sealed by the government including all the bank accounts in Pakistan in his name or his wife’s.

Surgeon’s house in Hayatabab phase III, in which he resided, was also sealed some days ago.

Earlier Afridi and his wife Imrana Ghafoor were also removed from their respective posts.

After the Abbottabad operation, he had been arrested at the Pakistan-Afghanistan border in Torkham while trying to escape the country.

It has been learned that the ‘treason case’ will start after the government’s approval has been given.
