    KARACHI : Namar Majeed, the son of Omni Group owner Anwar Majeed, was arrested on Saturday by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) in relation with the ongoing fake bank accounts case, Express News reported.

    During the hearing of the case at the apex court’s Karachi registry, the chief justice asked sugar worth millions could disappear from the group’s warehouses and summoned the group’s chief executive and other officials.

    The younger Majeed had been on interim bail and was taken into FIA custody after the hearing concluded.

    The Director General of FIA said nine sugar mills operate under the Omni group’s banner: Naudero, Bandhi, Khoski, Ansari, Tandowala Yaar, Bawani, New Dadu, Lord, and Chamar.

    The Chief Justice ordered the Omni group to submit full records by October 30.

    PPP co-chairperson Zardari, sister Faryal Talpur, former Pakistan Stock Exchange chairman Hussain Lawai and Summit Bank Senior Vice-President Taha Raza are among those being investigated by a seven-member JIT led by FIA Additional Director General Najaf Mirza for allegedly facilitating 29 ‘fake’ accounts in Summit Bank, Sindh Bank and United Bank Limited.

    According to the FIR registered against Lawai and others, billions of rupees were deposited into the fake accounts and subsequently transferred to beneficiaries, including the company owned by Zardari and his sister, the Zardari Group. The Zardari Group received Rs15 million of the laundered money, according to the FIR.

    In December 2016, the Sindh Rangers had conducted raids at the Karachi office of the Omni Group of Companies and the residence of its owner, Anwar Majeed and confiscated records which reportedly contained clues of the money laundering chain.

    During the hearing CJP Justice Saqib Nisar made it clear that the Supreme Court of Pakistan (SC) will look after matters of the Omni Group, a conglomerate allegedly involved in money-laundering worth billions.

    The top court also barred banking court from issuing any verdict in the case as the hearing of the same was underway in SC.

    Sugar ‘worth Rs12b’ vanishes from Omni mills
    CJP shows anger over disappearance of pledged stock, Anwar Majeed’s son arrested

    October 28, 2018
    KARACHI - Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar on Saturday expressed anger over vanishing of sugar stock worth billions of rupees from sugar mills of Omni Group.

    Omni Group is at the centre of the mega money laundering scam in which PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur are among the accused.

    Anwar Majeed, the chairman of this group, is already in custody for investigation and yesterday the FIA arrested his son Nimar Majeed from the court premises.

    Headed by the CJP, a larger bench of the Supreme Court on Saturday took up the issue of disappearance of huge stock of sugar from Omni Group’s mills.

    The court directed the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to present the record of Omni Group on October 30.

    Where were police and FlA when the sugar stock, pledged against bank loans, was being transported from the mills of Omni Group,” the CJP asked.

    Who is responsible for disappearance of stock,” he further questioned.

    FIA Director General Bashir Memon informed the court that nine sugar mills were operating under the Omni Group and nine cases had been registered against the group over disappearance of sugar stock.

    He stated that there was a total sugar stock worth Rs14 billion but now sugar worth two billion rupees was left in the mills.

    When CJP asked who exactly owns those mills, the DG replied those were owned by the Omni Group owners.

    During the hearing, the CJP said he had come to know that arrested people related to Omni Group were using mobile phones in jail and issuing direction from there.

    He ordered IG prisons to confiscate all mobile phones and warned of strict action if the court order were violated.

    Omni Group’s counsel submitted that statements of the persons related to the business group could be recorded without detaining them. At this the CJP said that the court could not do anything as the matter rested with the FIA.

    The chief justice ordered registering cases against those involved in illegal practices and directed FIA to produce all the record of Omni Group in the court on October 30, when the apex court would hear the case in Islamabad.

    Also, he said the Omni Group should submit its reply in the court in Islamabad.

    As the hearing of the case was adjourned, FIA personnel arrested Nimar Majeed from the court premises when he came out of the courtroom.

    The son of Anwar Majeed, the main character in fake accounts case, is wanted in the cases of sugar disappearance from their mills.
