ISLAMABAD - Director General Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Syed Tehsin Anwar Shah Wednesday tendered his resignation to Ministry of Interior just only two months after his present posting, while the sources in the agency are describing it a tactical move of the federal government to make the NICL scam more controversial. Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani is the competent authority to accept or reject the resignation of the director general and ministry of interior will forward it to the Secretary Establishment for further approval of the PM. The federal government appointed Syed Tahsin Anwar Shah Director General FIA on June 13 when his predecessor Malik Mohammad Iqbal was removed from the post after the Supreme Court indicted him of contempt of court for creating hurdles in NICL scam and removing Zafar Qureshi from the investigations. The DG FIA in his resignation has made the plea that he could not work under his junior, Zafar Ahmed Qureshi, Additional DG FIA and the chief investigator officer in National Insurance Company Limited (NICL) mega corruption scandal, and thus he should be relieved from his present assignment. The Supreme Court on Tuesday while hearing the same case associated Shah with the investigation team led by Additional DG FIA Zafar Ahmed Qureshi to facilitate the probe and ultimately his services were given under the subordination of Qureshi who is junior to DG FIA under the chain of command of the agency. The sources privy to the development say that DG FIA is of the view that he has taken a principled stance, as he can not work under the subordination of an officer who is junior to him in the chain of command of the agency and that is also against the soul of FIA Act as well. I will not work as DG FIA as long as the orders of the apex court stay regarding my association with Zafar Qureshi-led investigation team, a source close to Tahsin Anwar said while quoting him. Tahsin Anwar Shah was not available for comments when he was contacted. However, the reliable sources in the federal government informed on good authority that DG FIAs submission of resignation is only a tactical move of the government to give a threatening message to the apex court and make the investigations of the multibillion corruption scandal more controversial. They further claimed that the government would not accept the resignation of Shah who is believed to be very close to Chaudarys of Gujrat and the Interior Ministry bosses as well and the issue of resignation would be prolonged more. Earlier, two director generals of FIA, Waseem Ahmed and Malik Mohammad Iqbal, had to lose their job after facing a wrath from the Supreme Court on charges of interfering in the investigations of NICL scam and Haj corruption case.
