Pakistan’s top anti-corruption body National Accountability Bureau has ordered a probe against the ousted prime minister of the country Nawaz Sharif and others for allegedly laundering USD 4.9 billion to India, reported the Express Tribune.

According to the report, in a press release issued by the country’s top anti-graft body, the chairman took notice of reports making rounds on news channels claiming that Nawaz laundered $4.9 billion to India.

he media report also said that a record of this exists in the World Bank’s Migration and Remittances book of 2016.

The reports claim that the injection of such an amount into India’s foreign reserves resulted in an increase in their resources for which Pakistan is still suffering.

If the allegations are formulated, then this will be the fifth case against the em-battling politician.

Sharif is facing three corruption cases at the accountability court following the Supreme Court’s verdict in the Panama Papers case. A NAB inquiry is also under way against him for alleged illegal expansion of a road leading to his estate in Lahore’s Jati Umra locality.
