The way the PMLN coalition government is targeting property tycoon Malik Riaz it seems that the Sharifs are hitting two birds with one stone — Imran and Zardari.
After releasing purported audio of Malik Riaz and his daughter now
Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah on Tuesday accused former prime minister Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi of accepting Rs5 billion and hundreds of kanals of land from Bahria Town in return for “providing protection” to the real estate firm in a money laundering case during the PTI government.
Sanaullah said Bahria Town had “illegally transferred” Rs50bn to a Pakistani national in the UK. The transfer, he said, was identified by the UK’s National Crime Agency, which subsequently informed the then PTI government of the crime.
Sanaullah claimed that Imran, the prime minister at the time, had tasked Shehzad Akbar, ex-PM’s aide on accountability, to resolve the matter. Akbar “settled” the entire case, while the Rs50bn — which was state property and belonged to the national treasury — was adjusted against Bahria Town’s liability, the interior minister alleged.
On social media it was a top trend with people asking many questions.
“The government has yet to come up with something concrete by connecting Al-Qadir University (Trust) with the deal of Malik Riaz on NCA. No document GBs have been made public that bridges the NCA deal with land transferred to the University. Govt needs to declassify everything,” a Twitter user says.
Interestingly Malik Riaz gifted huge mansion at Bahria Town Lahore to Zardari and his son Bilawal.

Malik Riaz is in news these days, Malik Riaz's audios have also come to light Yes, the second audio is of Imran Khan conveying a message to Asif Zardari. Although Malik Riaz has denied both the audios, on the other hand it has also come to light that!++— 🐅محمدطاہربھٹی (@Tahir_BhattiPML) June 14, 2022
