Pakistan's anti-corruption watchdog has launched action against former Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf for alleged misuse of powers.
Peeved at the failure to appoint a chief for Pakistan`s anti-corruption body, the Supreme Court on Friday warned the government to do so soon or be ready to face the consequences.
At least two dozen people in Pakistan have been arrested by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for not paying electricity bills, an official said.
The investigator was probing graft allegations against Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf.
Relatives of a senior anti-graft investigator, who was found dead, alleged that his body bore marks of injuries though a preliminary autopsy report concluded that he had committed suicide.
Pakistan is estimated to have lost a staggering Rs 150 billion (USD 1.8 billion), thanks to the immunity granted to politicians, bureaucrats and senior military officers charged with corruption.
