Former Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal will appear before the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) probe team today (Friday).

As per details, Former Interior Minister and senior Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader will appear in a case related to alleged corruption and irregularities in Narowal Sports City project.

Sources said that Ahsan Iqbal will appear before the anti-graft body in Rawalpindi and will surrender his passport to the authorities.

He will also respond to the bureau’s questions about Narowal Sports City (NSC) Project.

It should be noted that Ahsan Iqbal had been released from Adiala Jail, after the Islamabad High Court had approved his bail.

A large number of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz workers were gathered before Adiala Jail to receive party leaders Ahsan Iqbal and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on their release, causing a traffic jam in the area.

The two-member bench of IHC had heard the bail plea of PML-N leader in Narowal Sports City case.

The bench had ordered former planning minister to submit Rs10 million surety bond for bail.

Last month, PML-N lawmaker and senior leader Ahsan Iqbal had moved the Islamabad High Court (IHC) to seek his bail in Narowal Sports City corruption case.

Ahsan Iqbal is accused of using funds of the federal government and Pakistan Sports Board (PSB) for a sports city in Narowal.

NAB had announced to initiate a probe into alleged violation of rules in the construction of the National Sports City project – a day after its inauguration by the then President of Pakistan Mamnoon Hussain.
