PESHAWAR: National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Khyber Pakhtunkhwa arrested Qazi Muhammad Anwar, owner of Qazi Trade Centre, Peshawar for alleged involvement in cheating public at large.
The spokesman said in a statement here on Thursday that Qazi Muhammad Anwar and others in the garb of fake construction business of Qazi Trade Centre, with mala fide intentions collected money from innocent people on the promise to hand over to them their respective developed expensive shops in Qazi Trade Centre Plaza situated on Ring Road near Pashta Khara Chowk Peshawar.
The accused persons advertised the project widely to attract investment in the business without having ownership of the land identified for the plaza nor having NOC from Peshawar Development Authority (PDA).
Due to prime location of the plaza, scores of innocent people invested millions of rupees with the accused. At the end the accused persons neither handed over possession of the shops nor return back their deposited amount.
The accused person will be produced before the Accountability Court Peshawar for obtaining his physical remand into NAB custody. -APP
