ISLAMABAD: The FIA had included Zain Sukhera, a family friend of the Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, into the investigation of the Hajj Scandal. Sukera recorded his statement to the FIA on Monday, Sources told the DawnNews.
DawnNews had also obtained exclusive pictures of Sukhera taken with the President Zardari and Prime Minister Gilani and his daughter.
According to the sources, Sukhera was appointed as a consultant in the ministry of Information Technology through PM’s approval in January 2010.
Sukhera was earlier alleged by the MNA Imran Shah of handing over the money to the PM’s son Abdul Qadir Gilani, after getting it from the former DG Hajj Rao Shakil (already arrested).
The matter of issuance of the diplomatic passports to Rao Shakil and his wife was still under investigation, although both were included in the Exit Control List (ECL) in 2009.
Meanwhile the Prime Minister’s son, Abdul Qadir Gilani told DawnNews that he had done no wrong and was ready to face the FIA. He further added that the accusers must come up with evidence.
