The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has issued arrest warrants for Kamran Kayani, brother of former chief of army staff (COAS) General (retd) Ashfaq Pervez Kayani, over his alleged involvement in the DHA City Lahore scam worth over Rs16 million.

“Kamran Kayani is accused of… corruption and corrupt practices under Section 9 NAB Ordinance 1999…,” read the warrant.

The DHA City project was launched in 2009, primarily to facilitate the families of martyrs, war wounded, and other armed forces staffers by allotting them small plots.

Kamran, owner of Elysium Holdings, and Hammad Arshad of Globaco, offered their services to facilitate DHA Lahore in carrying out the project by acquiring the necessary land.

Six years after the initial agreement, the accused have yet to deliver the plots to soldiers, families of martyrs and the general public.

This prompted DHA to lodge a formal complaint in January this year against Kamran and Hammad Arshad with NAB.

Arshad was arrested on allegations of corruption and corrupt practices, cheating the public at large and misappropriation of funds from Lahore.
