Iqbal Aaraiyn, who passed away on May 9, 2014, had three bank accounts mysteriously opened under his name after his death. A total of Rs4.6 billion worth of transactions were found to have been conducted through these fake accounts, sources familiar with the matter said.
A number of deposits such as this have surfaced in recent days, as the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) continues its probe in a high-profile money laundering case involving fictitious ‘benami’ bank accounts.
The agency earlier this month traced a trade account of a student from Larkana with millions of rupees, a week after it found Rs2 billion in a food vendor’s bank account. An unsuspecting man from Hyderabad recently woke up an overnight millionaire when he found Rs49,954,432 listed on his ATM slip.
