Islamabad, Oct 15 (ANI): Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf's closest aides have been accused of helping to loot a British Pakistani banker after powerful land mafia members occupied his palatial property in Islamabad's posh F-11 Sector.
British national Irfan Qadir was recommended by one of his close friends to contact a person called Anjum Pervaiz alias Jim Chaudhry to get help from him over this outright fraud in the capital of Pakistan, The News reported.
According to the claim made by Qadir and the court papers related to the civil litigation, the banker was assured that on payment of 32,000 pounds, Musharraf's close aide, Colonel Ilyas, would use his military influence to get the mafia members evicted from his property.
Despite making the payment, which was supposed to be used for paying commission and bribes back in Pakistan, there was no development, and his property documents remained in the custody of Ilyas, who used to live with Musharraf in London at the time.
Qadir said that when he asked Jim of any development on the issue, the latter informed him that Ilyas needed additional 8.7 million rupees to get his work done. Irfan said that he was shocked and asked Jim to return his papers, but he was refused.
Pakistan's former High Commissioner to the United Kingdom- Abdul Kadir Jafar- was one of those respected people whom Qadir then approached for help to gain access to Musharraf.
The banker claimed that he poured out his anguish and presented all the evidence regarding the case to Musharraf, but the former president didn't help him.
Despite promising to look into the matter, the former general never reverted to the victim or did anything whatsoever to discipline his people.
The banker has now also started civil litigation in London for a car in which Jim takes the former president around to his engagements. According to the banker's claims, the disputed BMW M5 was paid for by him. (ANI)
