The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) has summoned Ziaur Rehman, the younger brother of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) supremo Maulana Fazlur Rehman, on January 26, citing sources.

Sources closer to NAB told that Ziaur Rehman has been summoned by NAB KP on January 26.

Moreover, the former chief secretary Sahibzada Riaz Noor, former secretary establishment Sahib Jaan, former secretary governor Ahmed Hanif Orakzai were also issued call-up notices by the anti-corruption watchdog.

The bureau is probing into the illegal inclusion of Fazlur Rehman’s brother Ziaur Rehman in KP Provincial Management Service (PMS) in 2007.

Ex-chief secretary and former secretary establishment have been summoned on January 27 and 28 respectively, sources added.

Earlier on January 11, Maulana Fazlur Rehman had dared the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to send a questionnaire to him and threatened the institution with dire consequences if it sends a questionnaire to him.

NAB had earlier sent a questionnaire to Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman by post but the delivery staff of the concerned post office failed to deliver it at the residence of the JUI-F leader in December last year.
