Here is a good news for the affectees of a housing scheme in Rawalpindi. An amount of Rs2 billion will be reimbursed to people affected by the Lucky Ali Housing Scandal in September. The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has asked the affected people to submit their claims as soon as possible. 

The NAB Rawalpindi has made the recovery from the owner of a fake housing project. According to an announcement made by the NAB, the aforementioned amount has been recovered from the National Housebuilding and Roads Development Corporation. The management of the housing society had submitted an application for a plea bargain. Accused Mian Waseem ran publicity campaigns of the fake housing society through the electronic and print media, but he had not even applied for a NOC for the housing scheme. 

NAB Rawalpindi Director General Irfan Naeem Mangi has said the watchdog is pursuing zero-tolerance policy towards corruption and it is committed to eliminating corruption from the country.
