Karachi: FIA arrests 4 for stealing Rs100m from Zardari family account
KARACHI: About Rs100 million, belonging to the Zardari family account, were fraudulently withdrawn here, while the FIA has arrested some persons in this connection.
FIA authorities were given directives by an important Sindhi personality affiliated with the Zardari family, and overlooking political affairs of Sindh, to look into the embezzlement.
Three persons, including two bank managers, were arrested by the FIA, after registering a case against them and also managed to win a seven-day remand of them.
The FIA has informed that the manager of an important personality was also involved in the scam, but had managed to flee abroad, and contacts were being made with Interpol for his arrest. The arrests of other employees of the bank, alleged to be involved, were also being sought. Court sources have expressed surprise over the fact that the arrested culprits had been produced in court in a rather silent way without much fanfare, which was quite unusual, in the face of the enormity of the crime committed. They said it seemed as if something was being deliberately downplayed.
