The anti-corruption department of the government of Punjab has started investigating the corruption charges against the friend of former first lady of Pakistan Bushra Bibi, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Thursday.

Sources told 24News that the department was investigating the development of Mongolia Housing Society in Gujranwala by Ghausia Builders, the construction firm owned by Gogi, whose plots she had allegedly sold despite the fact that they never existed. 

For that, sources added, the department had sought record from the Gujranwala Development Authority as well. 

24News was further informed that the inquiry had been launched against Gogi following complaints received from the people affected by the alleged scam. 

Ever since the PTI is out of power, Gogi has been under the PML-N-led coalition government’s scanner, which gives the impression that the new government wants to settle scores with the former prime minister, Imran Khan, whose wife Bushra is Gogi’s close friend. 

Initially, it was on April 28, 2022 that 24News had reported that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had launched an inquiry against her. 

And later, on May 26, 2022, there was a report that the Bureau had issued summons to four persons in connection with the probe into graft charges against her.
