RAWALPINDI - The Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) Rawalpindi Region has filed a case against the former Federal Minister of Labour, Manpower and Overseas Pakistanis Ghulam Sarwar Khan and three other officials of the Punjab Board of Technical Education for preparing bogus educational certificates.
The other four accused in the case number 67/12 registered on October 18, 2012 included Punjab Board of Technical Education Chairman Col (retd) Baig, Assistant Secretary Mian Muhammad Shafique, and Superintendent Certificate Abdullah Niaz Ahmed.
Earlier, Lahore High Court (LHC) Rawalpindi Bench Justice Sheikh Najam-ul-Hassan had granted a stay order in the petition filed by Ghulam Sarwar. On Friday the court did not extend the interim order after which ACE Rawalpindi Region penned in a case number. According to sources, ACE officials started conducting raids to nab the accused.
Talking to TheNation, Sarwar confirmed the registration of a case against him. However, he was not involved in any such activity. Commenting on the step of ACE, he said that under the law if any adjournment was made, the stay order got automatically extended and the investigation body could not register a case against any one.
Khan blasted Leader of the Opposition Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan saying, “It is he (Nisar) who influenced ACE to file a case against him”. He said that he is innocent and had not done any crime.
