NAB Recovers Rs. 730 Million in Cash from a Government Employee

NAB (National Accountability Bureau) today raided the house of a government employee in Quetta to recover almost quarter of a billion rupees in cash (both local and foreign currencies), bonds and jewelry.

Media reports say that Mushtaq Ahmed Raisani, the man who was raided to recover this much money, was finance secretary for Balochistan.

Frankly speaking, I am speechless.

This individual was a secretary and he was hiding quarter of a billion in cash at his home. Imagine the amount of money the high-ups, politicians and other more resourceful people must be hiding. Let alone the offshore companies that the top-line rich elite have stored at places beyond the reach of Pakistani bureaus.

We are assuming that this money was un-taxed or he had conveniently kept this amount in a bank.

No doubt this gentleman was just a small chap who couldn’t influence NAB, otherwise there are several hundred mega corruption cases that NAB isn’t processing for reasons known to everyone.

In such situations, its funny that Ishaq Dar wants to tax the common man. I wonder why doesn’t he, and other government bodies, look for ways to stop this bloodbath of corruption and un-audited money that’s flowing in the walls of rich elite?

Check below video to see the magnitude of money we are talking about here:

  • “Just a secretary”? Secretary is a provicial level job with 20 or 21 rank. They probably have more pull then most of the MPAs/MNAs so I am not really surprised a Finance Secretary having this much money.

      Yep was thinking same! Seems the writer doesn’t have idea how much powerful finance secretary is! Plus MNA’s come and go but bureaucrats are always their and not under the radar as much as politicians!

    • Fahad Ali

      I totally agree, and I am aware the sway bureaucrats have in our system. But compare a secretary to some of the other political, industrial, judicial, media and military personalities and you will find that the statement “Just a secretary” at least has some merit.

      Yes, seriously author should literate himself in this regards :P … i think he was thinking about common office secretary who assist hi boss :P

    Sirf aik SECRETARY ne itnaa saara maal banaya hai toh Nawaz/Shehbaz Shareefs, Fin Minister Ishaq Dar and Zardaaris ki curruption, loot maar, kick-backss, money laundering ka toh andaza lagana bhi mushkil hai .. Kahan aik chotay soobay ka chota sa Secretary ( 64 Crores ) .. In Shareef or Zardaariyo k hath to poora Mulk hai mulk .. Arab Kharab kya hain in k agay .. Kyu na hon phir khud kushiyaan :( :( :( :(

    Ya ALLAH hum awam pe rehm farma takay hum khud pe rehm kr sakein or vote detay huay andhay behray na banein ainda ……… very very sad thing

    NAB should be free of any political pressure and should be allowed to arrest whoever they want be it PM,president anyone who is doing corruption and taking pakistani people hard earned money.Otherwise these corrupt politicians will take Pakistan back to stone age.

    @Aamir Atta, Amir Bhai isn’t there any chance that the people counting this money can hide some cash for themselves? :D :P

    Reminds of me Indian movies where they say ‘sirf ek aadmi kay paas se itna paisa nikla hai to sab corrupt logoun kay paas kitna paisa hoga? 10000 crore”.
    The above dialogue is true for Indian and Pakistani politicians.
