The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Wednesday decided to end all corruption-related inquires against Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) senior minister Syed Khursheed Shah, officials said. Currently working as Religious Affairs Minister, Shah was under investigation for two corruption cases since 2002-03, on the orders of Pervez Musharraf’s government. The NAB spokesperson also confirmed the move, saying that “all inquiries against Shah were dropped due to lack of evidence.” A communique in this regard has also been issued. The bureau also dropped cases related to embezzlement against another former lawmaker, Ghulamuddin from Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. The decision to end inquires was taken during an executive board meeting, presided by NAB Chairman Admiral (retd) Fasih Bokhari. Other cases against former civil servants Sikandar Ali Lakhair, Fakhar Karim Siddiqui and Muhammad Sadiq Majid were also dropped.
