PML-N leader Mo­ham­mad Sid­dique ul Fa­rooq has de­manded im­me­di­ate ar­rest of Javed Ashraf Qazi and oth­ers in­volved in il­le­gal deed of the Rail­ways Golf Club's sale.

Ad­dress­ing a press con­fer­ence at the party's cen­tral secretariat on Fri­day, he said that the agree­ment be­tween Na­tional Ac­count­abil­ity Bureau (NAB) and Has­nain Con­struc­tion Com­pany for the pay­ment of Rs 16 bil­lion was not suf­fi­cient.

The PML-N leader pointed out that he started Je­had against Javed Ashraf Qazi's cor­rup­tion in 2002.

Fa­rooq pointed out that he sent com­plaints through reg­istry, courier ser­vice, through fax and by hand about mega cor­rup­tion of Javed Ashraf Qazi to the then Chair­man NAB and also wrote sev­eral let­ters.

Adding the PMl-N leader said, at the same time he also sent pri­vate ref­er­ences against Ch Shu­jat Hus­sain, Chaudhry Pervez Elahi and Chaudhry Wa­ja­hat Hus­sain about wheat scan­dal and il­le­gal elec­tions to the NAB and Chief Elec­tion Com­mis­sioner but so far no ac­tion has been taken.

He ap­pealed the Supreme Court to di­rect the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the unan­i­mous rec­om­men­da­tions of the PAC in this con­nec­tion. He also re­quested the apex court to take suo motu notice of the 2005, 2006 stock mar­ket scan­dal in which Mushar­raf's fi­nance Min­is­ter Shaukat Aziz plun­dered 13 bil­lion dol­lars from 35,000 small in­vestors. Sid­dique ul Fa­rooq said he would file an ap­pli­ca­tion in the Supreme Court for be­com­ing a party in Javed Ashraf Qazi and oth­ers' cor­rup­tion cases. The PMl-N leader re­minded that when he raised voice against the cor­rup­tion of Javed Ashraf Qazi, he was kid­napped from out­side his house on Oc­to­ber 29 at the be­hest of the for­mer Rail­ways Min­is­ter and was tor­tured.
