Imran Khan questioned by Pakistan’s anti-graft body

Prime News, International (Peshawar), August 7:- Imran Khan, who is set to become Pakistan’s new prime minister, was questioned today by the country’s anti-graft body in connection with the misuse of helicopters of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government which allegedly caused Rs 2.17 million loss to the exchequer.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on August 3 had summoned 65-year-old Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman in the case. In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Khan’s PTI has led the provincial government since 2013.

The NAB wanted to question Khan as part of the preliminary probe into allegations that the cricketer-turned-politician caused Rs 2.17 million loss to the provincial exchequer by using the provincial government’s helicopter for over 72 hours. Officially he was not allowed to use the aircraft for personal purpose. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
