KARACHI: The National Accountability Bureau has detained an alleged land grabber involved in swindling public at large by defrauding around 1100 allottees. Suspect Haji Adam Jokhio launched bogus projects, illegally allotting state land by carving out plots. He allegedly allotted 70 acres of state land over a period of 27 years. The value of the land was figured to be around Rs3.5 billion.
Earlier on Oct 29, NAB had summoned Asif Ali Zardari’s brother-in-law, Fazlullah Pechuho in an illegal land allotment case. NAB called Pechuho for interrogating in association with its investigation into lawless allotment of land in Kashmore.
He had allotted 12,000-square-feet land side by side to Taluka hospital Kashmore to a local, Abdul Rehman Dashti in his capacity as finance secretary and member of the provincial allotment committee.
