“Unabated corruption will not go unchecked in country from now onwards. Lay man will not feel content till complete annihilation of menace of corruption”, clarified Iqbal.
The anti-graft watchdog categorically dismissed allegations about alleged humiliation during NAB’s proceedings.
“Process of accountability is in greater interest of the country. It is watchdog’s primary duty to ask from guardians of national exchequer that where sum of money is spent”, stating Iqbal while adding that NAB did not have enmity with any specific individual.
