Probe into Nandipur scam is at advanced stage, SC told

ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) assured the Supreme Court on Saturday that an inquiry into delay in construction of 525MW combined cycle power plant at Nandipur (Gujranwala) was at an advanced stage and relevant record was being minutely scrutinised to conclude the probe.

At the last hearing on Aug 9, a three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar had expressed dismay over delay in filing a reference pertaining to allegations of corruption in the construction of the Nandipur project, and ordered NAB to provide a list of inquiries that had remained dormant during the period when Qamaruzzamn Chaudhry was holding the office of chairman of the bureau.
