Islamabad: FIA turns screws on Moonis in NICL scam
ISLAMABAD: The Federal Investigation Agency seems to be tightening the noose around Moonis Elahi, the scion of the powerful Chaudhry of Gujrat, and a set of questions has been sent to him to answer over his alleged involvement in the multi-billion-rupee-scam at the National Insurance Company Limited (NICL).
Sources confirmed that Moonis Elahi was being sent a series of questions on the basis of a written statement of Moonis’s manager, who had confessed before an FIA team during investigation that he had opened a fake bank account in which key accused Mohsin Warriach, now absconding in London, had transferred Rs230 million, meant for Moonis Elahi.
Sources have confirmed that this was the first step by the FIA to investigate Moonis Elahi as sending a set of questions was usually done in cases of fraud and white collar crimes. However, if his replies to the questions were not found satisfactory, Moonis Elahi could be asked to appear before an FIA investigation team for questioning.
