I demand Supreme Court to immediately take suomoto on #ChairmanNabScandal video. The audio could be tempered but not the videos, which clearly shows him kissing and talking vulgar with the woman whose husband’s cases were in his office.— Shama Junejo (@ShamaJunejo) May 24, 2019
This is misuse of Power, he must resign!
The anti-graft body said that “the news channel [too] has not only already admitted that the news was fake and contrary to the facts but also apologised to the NAB chairman for causing him distress.”
NAB said that it has “not only already arrested two members of the blackmailing group but also approved the filing of references against them”.
People on social media are reacting to the vulgar conversation by the chairman of a reputed department. However, the matter will be closed as there are some people above the law in Pakistan.
