Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has approved the sacking of ex-EOBI chairman Zafar Gondal from service.

The notification said, “The documentary evidence against Zafar Iqbal Gondal is so clear and compelling that the Inquiry Officer is completely justified in concluding that the charges against him stand fully proved.”

“Upon receiving the recommendations, the premier using his authority under the ambit of ‘Government Servants (Efficiency and Discipline) Rules 1973’ concluded that Gondal is guilty, beyond reasonable doubt, of ‘corruption’, ‘misconduct’ and inefficiency,” it added

It is pertinent to mention here that sacked ex-Chairman EOBI Zafar Gondal is the brother of ex-Federal Minister Nazar Mohammad Gondal, who has  recently joined Pakistan Tehreek Insaf after leaving Pakistan People’s Party.
