Using fake Pakistani cards, 2 Afghans win local polls

Using fake Pakistani cards, 2 Afghans win local polls

Dec 11, 2015 - 12:29

PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Two Afghan citizens, who have won local government elections on fake Pakistani identity cards, are facing investigations, a newspaper reported on Friday.

Identified as Ijaz Khan and Sohbat Khan, the Afghans contested union council polls in Pakistaninfo-icon’s garrison town of Rawalpindi, the Nation quoted intelligence sources as saying.

They were supported by the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf and Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz). The National Database Registration Authority (NADRA) has placed Sohbat’s name (CNIC number 37405-0821438-5) in the category of “suspect block”.

Sohbat, currently living in New Madina Town, originally belongs to Afghanistaninfo-icon’s southeastern Paktika province. Son of Sahib Jan, he obtained a fake CNIC by providing bogus information to NADRA.

If found guilty of feeding NADRA flawed information, the two men may be de-notified as general councilors and their CNICs blocked permanently under the relevant rules, one official indicated.
