CM Sindh fails to appear before NAB second time

KARACHI: Chief Minister of Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah did not appear before NAB here today for the second time in a case regarding offering subsidies to sugar mills through unauthorized channels.

CM stated that his staff had received the notice and the questionnaire attached to that and the responses would be provided in due course of time. Sources in CM House have informed that CM had provided the responses to the queries earlier.

It is pertinent to recall here that in the beginning of 2019 when the CM Sindh appeared before NAB’s Rawalpindi chapter in connection with fake bank accounts case, he was quizzed for an hour by a five-member team.
