An accountability court on Monday indicted former prime minister Raja Pervez Ashraf and other accused in Gulf Power Generation Company Limited and Rental Power Plant cases.
Pakistan People’s Party leader Raja Pervez Ashraf is accused of misusing his authority during his tenure as the minister for water and power.
Pervez Ashraf got approval from the Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) for an increase in the down payment to the rental power companies.
An accountability court last week dismissed an acquittal plea of Ashraf in the Nandipur power plant corruption case.
The court summoned witnesses on August 7 to record their statements.
