Peshawar: Ex-FC official convicted
PESHAWAR: An accountability court on Friday convicted a former superintendent of Frontier Corps in a corruption reference and sentenced him to two years rigorous imprisonment with a fine of over Rs7 million. The court presided over by Shamsher Ali Khan pronounced that the prosecution had proved its case against the accused Ajmal Khan and the evidence on record was sufficient for his conviction.
Reference against the convict, hailing from Kohat district, was filed by the National Accountability Bureau, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, in 2008. The prosecution claimed the convict possessed assets disproportionate to his known sources of income.
The NAB alleged investigation against the accused revealed that during his service he accumulated moveable and immoveable assets through corruption in his name and in the name of his spouse and other relatives.
The special prosecutor of NAB Azeemdad Khan argued that the accused could not prove that the assets possessed by him were made through legal means.
