The Federal Investigation Agency has registered a case of money laundering and begun an investigation against Farah Gogi, a confidante of former First Lady Bushra Bibi.
The case, which is related to the embezzlement of billions, was registered after a formal application was received by the Punjab anti-corruption department.
As per the plea, the accused took billions in return for the appointment of RPOs, commissioners, DPOs, and DCs during the rule of the former premier and the current chairman of the PTI.
Farah is also accused of registering an expensive piece of land in the Faisalabad Industrial Estate in her company’s name for peanuts.
According to the FIR filed, she also made millions by pressuring officials for illegal allotment of tenders for the projects.

It was revealed during the investigation that some 840 million were transferred to the bank accounts of the accused during the previous government’s rule, which do not coincide with her means of earning.
Earlier this month, PML-N spokesperson Ataullah Tarrar alleged that Farah took Rs1.6 billion in bribes during the term of the ex-prime minister.
Tarrar had further alleged that Farah was able to acquire such sort of money with help from the PTI chief and his wife.
In 2018, he had said, Farah opened 10 to 12 bank accounts to accumulate the ill-gotten wealth. Imran was complicit in foreign trips on private jets, selling the gifts meant for Toshakhana, postings and transfers of government officials, and being a party in the development projects.
Last month, in an interview to a private news channel, former PTI senator Faisal Vawda claimed that former army chief General Bajwa was the one who allowed Farhat Shahzadi alias “Farah Gogi”, to leave Pakistan. “When Farah left the country, Bajwa sahib knew of it and obviously he had approved it”, Vawda was quoted as saying.
