Ex-principal secretary of Parvez Elahi booked

Several former and current Elahi associates are being investigated following the termination of his tenure as Punjab Chief Minister. Last Monday, Punjab’s anti-corruption authority charged Elahi’s former principal secretary, Mohammad Khan Bhatti, with accepting bribes.

Bhatti is accused of accepting a bribe of more than Rs460 million from employees of the provincial highway department in the first information report (FIR) filed by the Punjab Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE). SDO Highway Police Rana Muhammad Iqbal has already been charged with bribery accusations, and the ACE has begun the process of arresting Bhatti on corruption charges.

According to the FIR, Iqbal bribed Bhatti to secure positions of his choice.

The news comes just a day after the former Punjab chief minister’s chauffeur and the gunman were arrested in Islamabad for allegedly transporting liquor bottles.

On “Elahi’s orders,” the accused allegedly provided an envelope full of money to Punjab House employee Faheem Mirza in return for a briefcase containing liquor bottles. According to police, the accused further told the magistrate that Faheem and Irshad, the purported workers of Punjab House Islamabad, are frontmen for the previous chief minister.

According to them, both of the suspected frontmen are involved in monetary transactions for Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi. A case against them has been filed at Islamabad’s Secretariat Police Station under several regulations.
