Some startling revelations have been made in investigation into the assets of Farah Gogi, a friend of former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan’s wife Bushra Bibi, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Thursday.
It has come to light that Farah’s assets, both declared and undeclared, increased by Rs4,520 million during the three years Imran remained the country’s prime minister.
Her declared assets increased by 420 per cent, while undeclared ones by 15,300 per cent.
As per the investigators’ claim, it has also emerged that 240 kanals of land was transferred in Farah’s name as a bribe.
Similarly, they claim that the lady also made the most of tax amnesty scheme.
Furthermore, she accumulated Rs489 million under the heads of postings and transfers of people and awarding government contracts to her favourites.
It has been further alleged that Bushra Bibi’s friend owns agricultural lands in Bahawalpur and Gujranwala besides owning residential and commercial properties in Islamabad and Lahore.
Farah owns 200 kanals of agricultural land at Chakri near Islamabad.
Furthermore, investigators say, her tale of corruption is not restricted to Pakistan only as both she and her husband worked as directors at Gold Star Euro Private Limited by posing themselves as doctors.
Similarly, the number of her bank accounts in Pakistan continued to increase between 2019 and 2021.
Investigators claim that in one of these accounts, Rs426 million were deposited in four years.
Investigators also claim they have been able to trace total 102 bank accounts belonging to Farah Gogi, Ahsan Jameel Gujjar and their business partners, valued at over Rs14 billion.
They opine that the very fact that the suspect managed to flee from the country soon after the ouster of the PTI government in 2022 showed there was something fishy.
Not only this, former first lady’s friend has also been found involved in money laundering.
