The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has uncovered the misappropriation of hundreds of thousands of rupees in subsidies for the Utility Stores in Sukkur.
The FIA has written a letter to the Utility Stores Corporation (USC) in this regard, explaining that Regional Manager Sukkar, Audit Officer, and other officials have been accused of the misappropriation of subsidy funds, hiring ghost employees, and making fake appointments.
The letter said that the FIA’s Corporate Crime Circle Sukkur will investigate the matter and that the concerned officials have been summoned on 10 February.
FIA’s Crime Circle Karachi had arrested three employees of the USC in October last year for their alleged involvement in corruption worth millions of rupees.
According to official documents, the FIA had registered cases against seven employees of the Karachi region, which included Syed Danish Ali, s/o Syed Abu Talib, the former Store In-charge USC South, Karachi Region, Pak Secretariat Store, as well as Ahmed Faraz, Zulfiqar Ali Soomro, Mansoor Ahmed Khan, Muneer Ahmed Khan, Shahid Murtaza, and Naseem Afsar.
Danish Ali, Ahmed Faraz, and Zulfiqar Soomro had been arrested in raids a day later, and FIA Inspector Ayub Mangrio is investigating the case.
