President rejects restoration appeal of ex NAB officer involved in stealing docs

President Arif Alvi rejected the appeal of ex NAB Assistant Director Muhammad Umair for restoration and asked NAB to prosecute him to the maximum extent of the law on account of him being guilty of grave “inefficiency and misconduct”, and stealing 15 original deeds of property in reference no. 15/2019 (State v/s Sharjeel Inam Memon & Others)., reported 24News HD TV channel on Monday.

Muhammad Umair was terminated from the service after accusations of steal important documents. 

The President rejected his appeal and ordered further action against him. Muhammad Umair had stolen 15 original property deeds in Sharjeel Memon reference. After inquiry, NAB had issued an order to dismiss Muhammad Umair. The President upheld the order of NAB to remove Muhammad Umair from service and said that NAB should take legal action against Muhammad Umair. The President said that theft of original documents from the custody of NAB was a heinous crime. 

The President said the documents were not accidentally stolen but the corrupt official did it deliberately, adding that only the necessary documents were stolen while the rest of the papers were present. He said it was very difficult for him to decide in this case as the nation had lost billions of rupees due to criminal act.
