ISLAMABAD: Joint Investigation Team (JIT) has detected more transactions in fake bank accounts case while Supreme Court (SC) has ordered Sindh government to provide the requisite record to JIT till October 26.
The fake bank accounts case came up for hearing before SC Monday.
JIT filed second progress report in the court.
On inquiring from Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar JIT head Ehsan Sadiq told the investigations are still underway. The matter is more complicated than fake accounts.
CJP remarked “ the thieves will die but will not return a single pie. The thieves may have not kept money in such accounts.
JIT chief Ehsan Sadiq said “ the accounts were closed after withdrawing the money. Heavy amounts were transferred through fake accounts and companies. Billion of rupees were kept in the bank accounts of rickshaw wala and Falooda wala. Bank accounts of two dead were also opened. The investigation made so far reveals that a mega fraud has been committed.
He also told the court that Sindh government was not cooperating with them and the relevant record was also not being provided. Energy secretary is extending no cooperation with them despite filing of application by them.
Advocate General (AG) Sindh sought four months time to trace record.
The court while rejecting the plea for giving four months time ordered that record be furnished immediately.
Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan remarked “ are some people linked to fake bank accounts at large.
Head of JIT told the court several Sindh government officers have shifted abroad. Transactions amounting to Rs 47 billion came to open through fake accounts. More 54 billion rupees were transferred from 36 benami companies. Several companies of Omni group are connected with this case.
CJP warned action will be taken if meddling is made in government affairs. I have heard Amwar Majeed and other accused have been shifted to hospital. I am thinking about bringing Anwar Majid here from Karachi. We shift him into Adiala jail. We get him shifted to Rawalpindi Institute of Cardiology. We have no trust on Sindh doctors reports. The influential accused are in jail in the morning and at night they are in their homes.
The court summoned IG Sindh on October 26 besides rejecting Omni Group counsel for providing him JIT report.
