PESHAWAR - National Accountability Bureau Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa arrested two private persons, Razaullah and Ubaidullah, for allegedly fleecing people of more than Rs100 million.

NAB KP said in a statement that during investigation against one Jamal Khan Khattak, who had been area sales manager with a multinational company operating in Pakistan and had later set up his own company, Khattak Enterprises, it was learnt that the accused in connivance with Jamal Khattak had lured general public to invest in the company for profits.
