Recently, an investigation team of the NAB Lahore grilled Secretary for Primary and Secondary Healthcare Ali Jan Khan during a probe into the alleged purchase of medicines at higher rates. The meeting took place at the NAB Complex in Thokar Niaz Beg.
He sat before a combined investigations team for over an hour to answer their questions. Jan was also handed over a questionnaire to be filled and submitted to the team. NAB is probing allegations over the purchase of medicines at exorbitant rates through a central contract in the Punjab Health Facilities Management Company.
Punjab Health Facilities Management Company was one of 56 entities of Punjab, against which NAB started investigations. In November 2017, NAB Chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal had ordered an inquiry into the companies as NAB had received complaints of corruption, irregularities, nepotism and failure to provide service delivery despite the expenditure of millions of rupees.
NAB also summoned the record of the companies last month for analysis. Few of the companies included Punjab Saaf Pani Company, Lahore Transport Company, Lahore Waste Management Company, Lahore Parking Company, Multan Cattle Market Management Company, Punjab Livestock and Dairy Development Board and waste management companies.
