KARACHI: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Thursday arrested a former taluka municipal officer (TMO) of Sindh’s Sujawal district, Mumtaz Ali Zardari, on charges of corruption and embezzlement worth millions of rupees.

“The arrested accused was allegedly involved in corruption worth Rs.100 million which he committed through withdrawal of illegal cheques and issued huge amounts to fake contractors/parties,” said a press release issued by NAB Karachi.

NAB accused the suspect of falsifying accounts, making fake purchases, and paying salaries to ghost employees while embezzling the budget and not carrying out development work in any scheme.

The accountability bureau said it has started multiple investigations into cases while claiming that “sufficient proof has been collected and seized for further proceeding under the law”.
