SC nullifies PHC order directing NAB to probe Peshawar BRT
ISLAMABAD (City News) – Supreme Court of Pakistan (SCP) on Tuesday nullified order of Peshawar High Court (PHC) that directed National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to investigate alleged irregularities in Peshawar Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project.
The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government had challenged the order of the Peshawar High Court (PHC) in order to stop the investigation.
In the high court judgment, one of the points referred to a special BRT cell in the transport department wherein consultants and other human resources were hired but despite that, the project was given to the Peshawar Development Authority.
The court observed that weekly meetings about the project were convened and despite that the project was not coordinated well, resulting in loss to the public exchequer.
