Qadir learned that he has Rs2.225 billion in his bank account which he says he never opened.
He only came to know about the hefty amount when he got a letter from the Federal Investigation Agency.
When Qadir went to the FIA office, he was informed about the existence of Rs2.25 billion in bank account.
“I run a small stall. How can I have that much money. They have seen it themselves,” he said.
Qadir further said that he can’t even properly read Urdu, how can the account had English signature “I am an illiterate person,” he said.
Qadir said he had opened an account once when he bought a house in Surjani Town.
