ISLAMABAD: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has registered a case against former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and 10 others in the prohibited funding case.

The other nominated accused included Sardar Azhar Tariq, Saifullah Khan Niazi, Syed Younus, Tariq Sheikh, and Tariq Shafi and the owner and a manager of a private bank among others, a local TV reported.

The suspects are accused of forgery and violating the foreign exchange act since they benefited from financial transactions in private banks.

The investigation agency claimed that the suspects opened bank accounts in the name of ‘Naya Pakistan’.

It said that the Abraj group allegedly sent over $2 million to an account of the party and a fake affidavit of Abraj Group Chairman Arif Naqvi was allegedly attached to clear the transactions.

FIA also claimed that it had exposed two more accounts of the PTI which had received funds from the ‘Wootton Cricket Club’ fundraiser in UK.
