The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Friday clarified that an inquiry launched against caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar in connection with assets was closed on “merit” after a thorough investigation into the allegations.

The clarification came hours after a three-member bench of the Supreme Court in a majority 2-1 verdict ordered to restoration of graft cases against public office holders that were withdrawn after amendments were made to the NAB laws.

According to NAB authorities, the charges against the incumbent interim premier could not be proved as no concrete evidence came on the record during the inquiry. “Complaint against the caretaker PM had nothing to do with the NAB amendments,” the officials said.

NAB sources said that the anti-graft watchdog had launched an inquiry against PM Kakar in connection with his assets in Quetta but the allegations could not be proved and subsequently, the inquiry was dropped on “merit”.


The well-placed sources also said that the “matter” had been cleared before he was named as the caretaker prime minister.
