NAB launches asset inquiry against Sindh’s minister for food

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has launched an inquiry against Sindh Food Minister Hari Ram Kishori Lal for allegedly accumulating more assets than his known sources of income justify.

Sources have told that the corruption watchdog has summoned property details of the minister and his family from the deputy commissioner of Mirpurkhas, who sought a month’s time to provide the same.

The DC is required to provide details of the commercial, agricultural, and residential properties as well as factories registered in the name of Hari Ram and members of his family.

Among the properties whose details have been sought are Noor Sugar Mill, Noor Cotton Mill, and Noor Shah Cotton Mill.
