M6 land scam: Four accused declared proclaimed offenders

Special Court-Banking on Thursday ordered the initiation of proceedings to declare four accused, including the former deputy commissioner of Naushahro Feroze district, as proclaimed offenders. The court issued the orders during the hearing of the Rs3 billion Sukkur-Hyderabad M-6 Motorway land acquisition scam.

The suspects, including former deputy commissioner Naushehro Feroze Tashfeen Alam, Tharo Khan Solangi, contractor and local PPP leader Rehmatullah Solangi, and Asghar Jatoi, have been absconding in the case, the FIA said. The court ordered the publication of advertisements in newspapers for the arrest of the absconders.

The court also directed the FIA investigation officer to submit details of the property of the accused. Earlier, on Friday, a court approved a four-day remand of six suspects arrested in connection with the M6 land acquisition scandal.

Accused Aziz Ansari, Rustam Khoso, Shafique Soomro, Sajjad Memon, and others were produced before an anti-corruption court. The court, while granting a four-day remand of the accused, ordered the anti-corruption team to complete the inquiry from the accused until the next hearing. It may be noted that 22 employees have been booked in a motorway land acquisition scam. The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) team earlier arrested the “front man” of private contractor Rehmatullah Solangi in the Sukkur-Hyderabad Motorway land acquisition scam. Accused Zawar Shah was taken into custody from Sukkur and was to be shifted to Karachi on transit remand.
