QUETTA: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has recovered a cash amount of more than Rs 630 million in a raid at the house of Balochistan Finance Secretary Mushtaq Ahmed Raisani here on Friday.
The NAB officials found 12 bags full of currency notes from Raisani’s house. The amount recovered was over Rs 630 million. Besides cash, jwellery and prize bonds worth millions of rupees were also found in the house of Raisani.
