FIA summons Imran Khan in cases involving illegal fundraising and audio leaks

KARACHI – Imran Khan, the chairman of the PTI, has been called up for questioning by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) in charges involving cypher audio leak and illegal finance.

The PTI president, who is spearheading a lengthy protest march to Islamabad against the government, has been ordered by the investigative agency to appear in the FIA office on November 3 at 12pm.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi, the PTI leader, was also called by the FIA on the same day for questioning about the audio leak issue. Additionally, Asad Umar was contacted on November 2.

Khan had been called in for a hearing at the FIA Banking Circle office in Karachi the day before, but he failed to show up.

The Abraaj Group, which is controlled by business mogul Arif Naqvi, is accused in the FIR to have transferred $2.1 million to the PTI account at a bank branch on Jinnah Avenue in the federal capital.

The federal government also claimed that the Imran Khan-led party got money from two Wotan Cricket Club bank accounts.

In the same case, the FIA has also detained Sardar Azhar Tariq, Tariq Shafi, and Younis Aamir Kiani. Arif Naqvi allegedly gave a false affidavit to the ECP in a case involving banned money, according to the report.

A few bank branch employees are also included in the FIR for failing to alert the relevant authorities to any suspicious transactions involving PTI.

After the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) determined that the PTI had received illegal funds, the FIA opened its investigation into the party in August of this year.

The top electoral commission stated that the Imran Khan-led party also received funding from business mogul Arif Naqvi and from 34 foreign nationals while announcing its decision on a case brought by disgruntled PTI leader Akbar S. Babar in 2014.

The party, according to ECP, concealed 13 bank accounts that it should have disclosed in an affidavit on its bank accounts that it claimed to have submitted.
