ISLAMABAD: Former president of Islamabad Farming Cooperative Society D-17 Muhammad Khan, who has been allegedly involved in massive irregularities, had been revealed to be an Afghan national.
Well-informed sources informed that Mohammad Ali fraudulently received documents and his National Identity Card (NIC) by pretending to be a Pakistani national. He is involved in massive embezzlement in Farming Cooperative Society in connivance with the organizational committee.
Rather than launching an inquiry into the matter, the regulatory Cooperative Societies Department (CSD) is paving the way for new elections for the society’s organizational committee for which the former president has nominated his close relatives.
The approval of the Annual General Meeting (AGM) without the Registrar and the illegal actions of the society has raised concerns over the working of the Cooperative Societies Department and is tantamount to collusion with the former president.
Last year, the former organizational committee was involved in selling society’s land at the 2008 rates, causing a loss of Rs200 million. A 64-kanal land was partially sold for Rs20.7 million. A case was already ongoing over the sale of four plots in C-16 in 2008 which were allegedly embezzled by former president Muhammad Khan in connivance with land provider Sagheer Hussain.
Similarly, the current organization committee has allegedly embezzled Rs30 million after handing over the contract for street construction to a little-known firm called Huzaifa Construction. All these were done without the approval of the Cooperative Societies Department and cause immense loss to the cooperative society.
