PESHAWAR: In a surprise move, four prosecutors of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Khyber Pakhtunkhwa resigned on Tuesday after serving the Anti-craft body for the last several years.
Citing “personal reasons” the prosecutors, Umar Farooq, Ashfaq Daudzai, Hasnain Tariq and Zairullah Khattak tendered resignations to the NAB chairman.
Resignations were tendered at a time when NAB is dealing with important cases, which include the Malam Jabba land scam in which the current and former Chief Ministers of the province has appeared before the anti-craft body.
NAB has now summoned senior K-P Minister Muhammad Atif Khan and PTI senator Mohsin Aziz for their alleged involvement in the scam.
