ISLAMABAD - The infamous National Insurance Company Limited (NICL) scam has taken a new turn as its chief investigator Zafar Ahmed Qureshi in his fortnight report submitted before the Supreme Court has stated that money was laundered in the mega corruption scandal and Moonis Elahi, one of the accused, was allegedly involved in it. Additional Director General of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Zafar Ahmed Qureshi on September 22 had submitted the progress report of the investigations conducted so far in the case before the apex court on its earlier directives. The report has not been signed by the Director General (DG) of the Federal Investigation Agency Syed Tahseen Anwar Shah. The 250-page report says that Moonis Elahi, a member Punjab Assembly and son of PML-Q leader as well as Federal Minister Pervez Elahi, has laundered the money in the land purchase scam to break the trail of Rs 320 million that he allegedly benefitted from the multi-billion-rupee scandal. These Rs 320 million were deposited in various bank accounts of Mr Elahi and his wife Tehreem Elahi during the NICLs purchase of land. Zafar Qureshi while giving the details has stated that around Rs 100 million were transferred through a private currency dealer from Dubai to Tehreem Ealhis bank account at Allied Bank Liberty Market Branch Lahore. The account already had an amount of Rs 60 million, Zafar Qureshi has said in its report adding that Mr Elahis spouse was not even a taxpayer. Similarly, Rs110 million were deposited in another account at EFG Bank in UK. According to the report, FIA had written to the Financial Management Unit (FMU) of State Bank of Pakistan for further investigations and it was conducting a detailed inquiry from the aspect of money laundering. Zafar Ahmed Qureshi in its report has also showed apprehensions that he would be facing life threats from the families of some of the accused in the NICL scam including the Chaudhrys of Gujrat and senior PML-Q leaders. Simlilary, the report says that hindrances are being created in the way of investigations of the case allegedly from Interior Ministry, Director General FIA and from some of the officials of the Federal Law Ministry. Zafar Qureshi has also submitted before the apex court that the DG FIA had not even provided the original report of Serious Organized Crime Agency (SOCA) UK containing information about the foreign bank accounts of Moonis Elahi despite his repeated attempts. Zafar Qureshi in his report has also alleged that Intelligence Bureau not only tapped his phones but also of the other members of his team when the investigations of the case were in progress.
