Aftab Sultan, who probed Pervez Elahi’s corruption case, appointed NAB Chairman

Islamabad: The government has appointed former Intelligence Bureau (IB) chief Aftab Sultan as the Chairman of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

The appointment was made after consultation between the prime minister and the opposition leader in the National Assembly.

Sultan, who was considered an upright officer during his service, would head the NAB for the next three years.

According to senior court reporter Hasnat Malik, “Supreme Court had constituted a joint investigation team in 2010 under Aftab Sultan to probe irregularities in Bank of Punjab during CM Pervez Elahi’s tenure.”

Malik said, “A 5000-pages-long report prepared by Aftab Sultan had revealed that Pervez Elahi had siphoned off Rs5.4 billion from the BoP.”
