Pakistan NAB – A Tool For Political Engineering And Mentally Harassing Opponents
Retired Brigadier Asad Munir on Friday allegedly committed suicide over “harassment by National Accountability Bureau (NAB). In a suicide note, he said:
“The NAB has made my life miserable; the authority has placed my name on Exit Control List and initiated three investigations and two inquiries against me in just a year. I have already submitted my asset details. I am further committing suicide to avoid humiliation, being handcuffed and paraded in front of the media.”
But this is not the first time NAB has been accused of misconduct.
Last year, Ex-Sargodha University CEO died in NAB custody, while PU Vice Chancellor was paraded in front of the media. Moreover, Bilawal Bhutto, Ahad Cheema, Aleem Khan and Zulfi Bokhari have also accused NAB of misconduct and harassment.
Shehbaz Sharif has also said that NAB did not reveal the grounds on which he was arrested.
The authorities must ensure that NAB does not misuse its powers. The allegations against the bureau must also be proved and NAB should be held accountable.
