PTI Chairman and Prime Minister nominee Imran Khan appears before NAB Peshawar office on Tuesday.
He is being held accountable in an ongoing investigation against his alleged helicopter misuse case. He is accused of using Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government’s helicopters for private visits.
Imran Khan is accused of illegally using an Mi-17 and an Ecureuil helicopter belonging to the KPK government for a total of 74 hours. This has caused KP government a collective loss of Rs 2.1 million.
Prime Minister in waiting had been summoned by the NAB Peshawar office on July 18, but had requested more time to appear before NAB due to his busy Election campaign schedule.
Imran Khan’s lawyer Babar Awan had submitted an application to the NAB seeking another date to appear in the helicopter misuse case.
Former KP government spent millions of rupees on Imran Khan’s use of the provincial government’s helicopters.
NAB chairman Justice (retired) Javed Iqbal in February directed NAB Peshawar to launch an investigation against the PTI chief and former KPK Chief Minister Pervez Khattak over the helicopter misuse case.
Certain government officials and Pervez Khattak have already appeared before NAB’s combined investigation team in the same inquiry.
