The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) has found no account of Imran, the key suspect in the Zainab rape and murder case.
According to sources privy to the development, the State Bank in its investigative report said it did not find any commercial bank accounts under the suspect’s name.
The Punjab government is expected to hold a press conference regarding the matter later today.
The State Bank earlier confirmed it had received a request from the joint investigation team (JIT) regarding reports by a private media house suggesting that the accused, Imran Ali Naqshbandi, held several bank accounts, including foreign accounts.
The central bank had begun collecting details from banks concerning the allegations, and had assured the JIT of its full cooperation in the case.
Meanwhile, according to sources, the JIT has also completed its probe into the alleged bank accounts of the suspect but found no bank account under his name and CNIC data.
