ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Rawalpindi has filed 5th reference in the fake accounts case in which the chief executive officer (CEO) of the Omni Group Abdul Ghani Majeed and provincial secretary of the Sindh government, Ijaz Khan have also been named as accused. The reference has been filed in the accountability court of Islamabad.

According to the NAB, Majeed had acquired benami assets on the name of his daughter Menahel Majeed.

As per the NAB reference, Omni Group CEO Majeed, who is shown as “absconder” in the reference, purchased a plot in the Defence Housing Authority (DHA) in the name of his spouse Menahel Majeed. NAB has already confiscated the plot.

It alleged that some accused persons created fake accounts and purchased plots from ill-gotten money. The reference accused them of misusing authority for the illegal award of different contracts to private contractors.

Zardari and his sister Dr Faryal Talpur are also facing a reference that has been transferred from the banking court of Karachi to the accountability court of Islamabad.
