NAB questions Imran Khan in helicopter misuse case

Updated:5 months, 2 weeks ago IST

New Delhi, Aug 07 (ANI): Pakistan's Prime Minister-elect, Imran Khan on Tuesday appeared before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for an ongoing inquiry against him for allegedly misusing helicopters owned by the provincial government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP). Geo News quoted sources as saying that a questionnaire was handed over to the cricketer-turned-politician. The 15 questions pertain to Khan's illegal use of KP government-owned Mi-17 and an Ecureuil helicopter for 74 hours, resulting in the loss of (Pakistani) Rs. 2.1 million to the state exchequer. On July 18, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman had asked for more time to appear before the NAB, citing unavailability due to campaigning for general elections. Through his counsel Babar Awan, Khan submitted an application seeking another date to appear before the anti-graft body. The case against Khan was filed after Geo News, in a report, claimed that the former KP government, headed by PTI's Pervez Khattak, spent a whopping amount on Khan's travel at the government's expense.
