In a significant development, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has conducted a raid on the Rawalpindi office of Bahria Town, seizing crucial records related to the Al-Qadir Trust University case. This move marks an escalation in the ongoing investigation into alleged irregularities and corruption involving the prominent real estate developer.

The NAB team, comprising 16 members, was accompanied by Punjab police and elite force personnel during the raid. The operation was carried out, with the team taking custody of important documents and digital evidence from the computers. The raid lasted for over two hours, and the NAB team also sealed the corporate head offices of Bahria Town.

The investigation into Bahria Town’s irregularities is not limited to the Al-Qadir Trust University case. The NAB has also initiated a probe into the acquisition of land for Bahria Enclave, which was earmarked for a zoo by the Capital Development Authority (CDA).

The Supreme Court has already taken notice of Bahria Town’s excesses, with a report revealing that the company has occupied 3,031 acres of additional land in Karachi beyond what was agreed upon with the court. The total land possessed by Bahria Town in Karachi now stands at 19,931 acres, with 813 acres in Malir district and 2,222 acres in Jamshoro.

The case has significant implications, with Rs460 billion to be recovered from Bahria Town, Karachi. The investigation is also linked to a £190 million case against former Prime Minister Imran Khan, with Malik Riaz’s name features in the case.

As the investigation unfolds, it remains to be seen how Bahria Town will respond to the allegations. Malik Riaz has already denied any wrongdoing, claiming victimization for introducing state-of-the-art projects in Pakistan since 1996. However, the NAB’s actions suggest that the agency is determined to get to the bottom of the case and hold those responsible accountable.
