Chairman National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Fasih Bukhari on Monday refused either to confirm or deny the reports regarding his resignation.
Asked if he was refuting the resignation report, he replied “I am neither confirming nor denying any such news”.
Earlier, a British news agency had reported that Bukhari had resigned as NAB chairman. The news agency claimed that Bukhari had spoken with them and said he could not reveal the reasons behind his resignation.
On Tuesday, the Supreme Court had directed the NAB to arrest 16 individuals including Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf in the rental power plant case within 24 hours.
