DERA ISMAIL KHAN: A questionnaire submitted by the National Accountability Bureau, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, to Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman concerning his properties could not be delivered to him by the post office concerned because he was twice inaccessible here at his home.
The questionnaire, including the pro forma wealth declaration pertaining to a pending inquiry into Maulana’s properties, was sent by registered mail to the NAB a few days ago, official sources said, instead of sending it via the local police.
On 22 and 23 December, the employees of the Shorkot Post Office attempted twice to send the questionnaire, but the servants present at the entrance of the Maulana residence told them that he was unavailable and thus declined to receive it on his behalf.
The post office in charge reported to Dawn that the workers were attempting to send the registered mail, but after the questionnaire was sent back to Peshawar, they could not meet Maulana Fazl.
He said NAB Peshawar had a register of letters, and it was not to be issued to anybody other than Maulana Fazlur Rehman, but because of his absence, it could not be delivered.
Sources suggested that the NAB KP had given Mr Rehman a questionnaire consisting of 26 questions, to which he had to send a reply by 24 December.
The questionnaire refers to his land and his associations with others accused of possessing illicit property.
Maulana has also been asked by the transparency watchdog to provide lists of the assets belonging to him and his family members and details of the properties acquired by him on his or some other person’s behalf.
