PESHAWAR: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has launched an inquiry against Faisal Zaman, a member of the Provincial Assembly, for amassing assets beyond his known sources of income.
Sources said that NAB Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has sent a letter to Deputy Commissioner Haripur to provide details of properties owned or sold by MPA Faisal Zaman and his family. He said that the district administration was asked to provide details of MPA properties to the NAB office by January 19.
Faisal Zaman was elected MPA from Haripur as an independent candidate. He is winning the election from his Ghazi constituency in Haripur district. He also defeated former Chief Minister Pir Sabir Shah. His family is rich and he is often called a “sailor” because he had ships.
Faisal Zaman was recently arrested in connection with the murder of a PTI leader.
CTD police arrested Faisal Zaman a few days ago from the premises of the anti-terrorism court. PTI leader Tahir Iqbal and his driver Sardar Gul Nawaz were shot dead by unidentified gunmen on September 14, 2020 in Ghazi Kotera village, Haripur Tehsil.
