407

LAHORE MIRROR (Monitoring Desk)– Further tightening noose, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Sunday has kicked-off action against 726 Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) workers allegedly involved in money laundering by issuing them notices.

At least 726 MQM members are accused of depositing an amount of Rs 1 billion in Khidmat-e-Khalq Foundation with different names.

An FIA official informed among the accused are Amir Bhai, Altaf Bhai, Ali Raza Bhai and other similar names who have deposited money in the welfare organization.

The Counter Terrorism Wing of the investigative agency has issued notices to many accused working on different positions in MQM and also appealed the nation to report if they come to know such names.

Four people have been directed to appear before FIA on November 12.

A money laundering case was lodged against the MQM supremo and KKF in Karachi in 2017. However, it was later transferred to the FIA’s Counter-Terrorism Wing, Islamabad.
