PESHAWAR - A special Anti-corruption and Immigration Court on Monday sent Nadra official to Peshawar central prison on judicial remand in the Sharbat Gula case.

The FIA officials produced the accused in the court after three-day custody in the case.

After hearing the case, the special Anti-Corruption court judge Farah Jamshed Khan sent the former official on judicial remand to the central prison.

Former Deputy Assistant Director of Nadra, Emad Khan, has been arrested for his alleged involvement in issuance of a Pakistani identity card to the Afghan green-eyed woman Sharbat Gula.

An FIA official said that former official of Nadra had been arrested from Islamabad as he was an absconder in the case.

The other two accused and Nadra former officials, Palwasha Afridi and Mohsin Ehsan, have obtained pre-arrest bails from the court.

The FIA registered the FIR on October 20 against Sharbat Gula and three former Nadra employees. They had allegedly issued Pakistani identity cards to Sharbat Gula and two other Afghans, Wali Khan and Rauf Khan, shown as her sons.

The FIR noted that after the completion of inquiry and checking of Nadra record, it was established that three employees of Nadra Peshawar offices fraudulently issued the CNICs to three Afghan nationals.
