The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had to suffer defeat on Tuesday as the Sindh High Court (SHC) rejected its plea against the acquittal of former chairman of the National Insurance Company Limited (NICL) Ayyaz Khan Niazi in NICL graft case, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
The NAB, which had filed an appeal in the high court against Niazi’s acquittal by an accountability court, failed to prove the allegations against him even in the SHC.
The judges, in their remarks, said there was a discrepancy between the witnesses’ accounts and the report determining the land’s price.
Other suspects in the case namely Hur Rahai Gardezi, Amin Qasim Dada, Muhammad Zahoor and Amir Hussain have already been acquitted.
