LAHORE - Another cold war is likely to start between the federal government and the FIA over the issue of investigation in National Insurance Company Limited (NICL) scam. Former NICL chairman and absconder in the NICL scam, Ayaz Khan Niazi, had surrendered and certain quarters of government wanted the investigation of Niazi to be completed at Karachi whereas Director FIA Punjab was not willing in this regard. Government wanted FIA Lahore to send its investigation team to Karachi to interrogate the accused when he was under the remand of FIA Karachi but Director FIA Zafar Qureshi would ask for fresh physical remand of the accused in the case which was registered against him with FIA Lahore. It is pertinent to mention here that Niazi offered the FIA his conditional arrest through his lawyer. Ayaz owned a nightclub in Dubai and was a close friend of a top Pakistani personalitys son. Ayaz Khan Niazis counsel, Hafeez Pirzada, proposed that the FIA authorities should not 'harass his family with repeated raids, he will appear to face an inquiry. The FIA lawyers discussed the proposal and rejected it, said the sources. Nine of the 12 accused in the NICL scam have already been arrested while raids are being conducted to arrest the remaining three. FIA would also send its teams to USA and Dubai to arrest Mohsin Warraich, the son of former minister Habib Ullah Warraich, who was declared proclaimed offender by the Pakistani courts and Interior Ministry has issued his red warrants. Talking to TheNation, director FIA said that raiding teams could comprise on two members. DG FIA Waseem Ahmed said the culprit Ayaz Niazi, wanted in NICL property scandal case, has given himself under conditional arrest of FIA officials in Karachi on Tuesday afternoon. Meanwhile, his physical remand was got by FIA from the court till November 30. Ayaz Niazi allegedly purchased low price land on expensive rates, consequently causing loss of billions to the national exchequer. There were five lawsuits including purchase of land in Karachi, Korangi and Dubai and some other of the same type.
