The Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) and the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) have launched investigations against three prominent businessmen, including Sabir Mittho, Chaudhry Ashraf, and Hamid Mushtaq, for allegedly accumulating illegal assets.

Mittho is the relative of former army chief General (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa. The FIA had also summoned him last year.

In October 2023, the agency revealed 14 national and five foreign bank accounts. The FIA had also sought a response on transactions of Rs5.34 billion from his accounts. But the case was closed before any inquiry and he was issued a clearance certificate.

The ACE has summoned all three individuals to appear before it on June 26 (Wednesday) while the FIA has issued separate notices to Ashraf and Mittho for June 27 and Mushtaq for June 28.

The anti-corruption agencies have directed the three businessmen to appear with detailed reports of their sources of income and assets. This move comes as part of the ongoing crackdown on financial irregularities and corruption within the business community.
