K-P minister, 10 others arrested by NAB over corruption charges

PESHAWAR: National Accountability Bureau and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Ehtesab Commission arrested KP Minister of Mineral Development Ziaullah Afridi and ten others on corruption charges, Thursday.

“Yes, we have arrested provincial minister Ziaullah Khan Afridi,” a high ranking office-bearer of K-P Ehtesab Commission told a private media outlet.

Afridi, a member of the Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf, was arrested for misuing his authority and violating the ban on the issuance of tenders, according to the official.

Other arrested officials include Bannu Commissioner Asmatullah Gandhapur and K-P Mineral Development Director Ziarat Khan.

In May, in a major move against corrupt officials, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Ehtesab Commission arrested former provincial excise and taxation minister Liaquat Shabab in a case related to alleged illegal assets.
