The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had filed the reference against Ghulam Haider Jamali, the former inspector general of Sindh police, and other police officers. The NAB inquiry began after the Supreme Court of Pakistan took up the case on media reports that nepotism and corruption was committed during Jamali’s tenure as IGP Sindh in recruiting hundreds of policemen. Jamali was also accused of embezzling hundreds of millions rupees, prompting the apex court ordering his removal from his post.
After his removal as IGP, the NAB was also ordered to start probe into the charges against him. It took NAB more than a year to file the reference against Jamali.
An administrative judge of NAB court has also summoned Fida Hussain Shah, the assistant inspector general of police (finance) with regard to hiring 881 policemen in the Sindh Reserve Police. Former superintendent of police and the deputies including Ghulam Nabi Keerio, Mir Abrejo, Ghulam Raza Solangi, Raja Ishtiaq, Abdul Qadir Kathor and Ayaz Hussain Memon have been also named in the reference.
During the hearing of the reference on Saturday, former IGP Jamali and other appeared before the court. The court after hearing counsels of the accused and NAB prosecutor set May 26 date for indictment of the accused.
