Rs.8 million has been found in the bank account of man, who belongs to Karachi and as per his testimony, he is unaware of it. This came amid the investigation of Rs.35 billion money laundering case by Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).
Rs.5000 was deposited by Adnan Javed to open three accounts entitled Lucky International in 2016 but he didn’t check on the balance. He was utterly shocked and astonished after hearing from FIA that Rs.8 billion is deposited in his account.
Adnan Javed was presented before FIA in Karachi and Islamabad and also before DG FIA before being taken to Supreme court and his statements were recorded.
32 people are being invested in money laundering case and fictitious bank accounts by FIA. Since the suspicious transaction report was being generated by State Bank of Pakistan in January, FIA is probing the case.
Between the year 2013, 2014 and 2015 almost 20 ‘Benami’ accounts were opened and as explained by FIA it is actually being done because it carries black money generated from different sources of commission and bribes.
Although the number of deposits went into billions but the banks where the deposits were held never informed the FIA about such activities.
