Ghotki washerman washes someone's Rs12.78b ‘dirty linen’ in his bank account

A washerman in Ghotki found himself in a tricky situation after the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) summoned him to explain Rs12.78 billion in his bank account, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Sunday.

After tracing a suspicious transaction of Rs12.78 billion from his bank account, the FBR called the washerman to appear in its office.

Romesh Kumar, a resident of village Wilu Mehar, was shocked after receiving a call-up notice from the FBR to appear before it on October 19 (Monday) for washing the apparent ‘dirty linen’ of someone in his bank account.

Romesh Kumar after receiving the notice of the FBR said he has no information who carried such a huge transaction from his account. He said he was working in Sardar Ghulam Muhammad Sugar Mills in 2009 and left the job two years ago.

The washerman has been asked to appear before the FBR for interrogation.

Earlier this year, a driver became an overnight millionaire after a suspicious transaction of Rs4.9 million into his bank account in Jamshoro was traced. The Jamshoro driver, Somaar Channa, was surprised over the presence of the large sums of money in his bank account.
