NAB had summoned Vawda for an inquiry pertaining to fraudulent allotment of amenity plots.
The notice was issued on Thursday under Section 19 of the National Accountability Ordinance shortly after the PTI leader held a press conference at his residence.
The letter had said that hundreds of amenity plots have been allotted to Faisal Vawda Group – a business conglomerate run by the PTI leader himself – in the name of dummy companies and NGOs.
The revenue generated from the ‘illegal’ utilisation of these plots has been used to finance terrorists and launder money on the pretext of investing in fund management companies, it alleged.
