Since the money belonged to the federal government, therefore, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) will deal with these cases.

Shahzad Akbar maintained that the list is based on a detailed data verification carried out by the BISP in collaboration with the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA).
