LAHORE - An investigation request has been made to FIA high ups over the alleged corruption of Sui Northern Gas Pipeline Limited (SNGPL) officials, well placed sources in FIA said on Tuesday.

The FIA investigators have requested Punjab Director Dr Usman Anwar to allow them to investigate the senior officers of the department. They said that an inquiry was underway in FIA against SNGPL officers, wherein they had issued Sui Gas connection unlawfully to the residents of a private housing Scheme.

An investigator said that issuance of connection to that area was a clear violation of Supreme Court orders. The FIA sources said that the SNGPL officers caused loss of millions to national exchequer.

According to the sources, Regional Chief Shahid Nisar and General Manager Mehmood Zia would be called by FIA investigators for interrogation. There were charges against these officers that they issued connections to hundreds of consumers without the approval of Development Section of SNGPL.
