Former petroleum adviser Dr Asim Hussain taken for questioning
KARACHI: Former adviser to the prime minister on petroleum Dr Asim Hussain was questioned by officials of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Wednesday, sources told.
According to the sources, NAB officials arrived at Hussain's office in Karachi's upscale Clifton area where they questioned him for about an hour. Later, personnel in plain clothes escorted Dr Hussain away in a white-colored vehicle.
No government or NAB official has so far issued a comment about Dr Hussain's questioning.
A close confidante of former president and Pakistan People's Party co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari, Hussain has previously served as adviser to the prime minister on petroleum during the last PPP government. He is currently serving as the chairman of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) in Sindh.
Hussain was out of the country and had just recently arrived in Karachi. It was unclear what he was being questioned about.
