Earlier this year, a driver from Jamshoro became an overnight millionaire after a suspicious transaction of Rs. 4.9 million.

  • So my question is when the govt, uncovers these bogus accounts, do they immediately forfeit the account and transfer the money into the govt???

  • I think Federal Agencies hit the gun and release to press without proper investigation. Last year, when the stupid e-portal of FBR was introduced everybody I knew became a billionaire. Later the bug was fixed and that wealth vanished overnight.

  • One thing is Clear when Government is honest every thing can be done but problem here is quite different Iam fighting against corruption since 1975 when ever I caught any Director General of my Government officials he or they were found supplying innocent girls to General and wines this only the reason agencies have information of all these Accounts they knew everything but these r kept on the instruction of Chief of Army Staff for next order how to black mail their own implanted political person’s
    I have proveS of billions monthly corruption more than One year eight months elapsed Sent on PM portal but no action 43 reminder issued
