M6 Embezzlement Case:
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has open a probe into the RS. 2.14 billion land acquisition corruption concerning the Sukkur- Hyderabad Motorway, M-6, which is already experiencing a delay owing to the federal government’s neglect and the National Highway Authority’s (NHA) negligence.
In this regard, NAB summoned the Deputy Commissioner (DC) Naushahro Feroze, Tashfeen Alam, for allegedly embezzling RS. 2 Billion funds. The case has garnered significant interest from the general public and the authorities, resulting in mounting criticism against the departments and parties involved.
