NAB closes investigation on Malir riverbed against Qaim Ali Shah

The Pakistan Office of Responsibility has closed its investigation into former CM Saimh Qaim Ali Shah for his alleged involvement in the illegal allocation of 307 acres in the Malir riverbed in 2011-2012 for the construction of housing businesses.

The NAB prosecutor told the Sindh High Court on Tuesday that they could not find enough evidence against the PPP leader.

The court said the NAB must first complete its investigation and then arrest the people.

The court ruled on Shah's motion and ordered that the amount of the bail he had paid be returned.

"It has been proven today that I am innocent," Shah told reporters after the hearing.

NAB said that the illegal allocation of land caused a loss of more than 15 billion rupees to the national treasury.
