The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Tuesday disposed of the application against Qaim Ali Shah after the NAB Investigating Officer (IO) recorded his statement in the court giving clean chit to the former Sindh chief minister.
The senior PPP leader was accused of misusing his authority while allotting government lands.
The former Sindh chief minister is also facing charges of corruption in the Roshan Sindh project initiated by the Sindh government for the installation of solar streetlights across the province.
The senior PPP leader had won seven out of eight general elections he contested, becoming an MPA six times, and a Member of the National Assembly (MNA) and senator once.
Qaim Ali Shah completed his 2nd term as Chief Minister of Sindh on 21 March 2013. He was once again, for the third time, elected to the office of chief minister of Sindh after the 2013 general elections. In July 2016, the PPP leadership decided to replace Shah with Murad Ali Shah as the Sindh chief executive.
