KARACHI: The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has uncovered another case of fake bank account and found millions of rupees in a female government employee’s account.
As per media reports, the woman, Sarwat Zehra, a resident of Korangi in Karachi, was served a notice by the FBR for being a tax defaulter after billions of rupees were found in her account under her name and a company registered in her name.
The woman said that she was unaware of the existence of the account or the company and alleged that her CNIC and phone number were used for this purpose without her knowledge.
The FBR has also frozen the salary account of the women, whereas the law enforcement agencies have summoned the women for investigation.
This is among the number of similar cases that have emerged in last few weeks. Days ago, a Karachi-based ‘faluda’ vendor was found out to be a billionaire, while in another similar case a student from Jhang was found to have Rs170 million stashed in a bank account under his name.
Similar to the previous case of the faluda vendor in Karachi, the student said that he was completely unaware of the incident and only got to know about it after the FIA summoned him.
The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) froze the faluda vendor’s bank account containing amount over Rs2.15 billion. As per details garnered, FIA decided to launch separate probes into opening of bank account in the name of faluda vendor Abdul Qadir and transfer of mammoth sum.
