Islamabad (Web Desk) A civil judge on Friday issued non-bailable arrest warrants for TV show host and former Pakistan Television chairman Shahid Masood for his alleged involvement in the embezzlement of Rs38 million from PTV, Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) sources told to media.
Masood is accused of signing an agreement with a fake company to obtain media rights for the Pakistan Cricket Board. The TV channel had to face a heavy loss due to the agreement, the sources said.
A Senior Civil Judge issued the warrants on the request of Kashif Riaz Awan, an investigation officer of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).
The investigation officer stated that the accused deliberately avoided to join the investigation.
He said since sufficient incriminating evidence have come on record, non-bailable arrest warrants should be issued for the accused.
