Malik Maqsood, also known as ‘Maqsood Chaprasi,’ was a distinguished servant of the Sharif family who died on Thursday. According to News report, Maqsood was nominated in the money laundering case against Shehbaz Sharif and his family.
Who was Maqsood Chaprasi
Malik Maqsood, the Sharif family’s peon, died of cardiac arrest, according to sources. Maqsood was charged with money laundering together with Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and his family.
According to sources, Maqsood was residing in another country. Former Accountability advisor Shehzad Akbar had claimed that millions of unaccounted-for money were found in Maqsood’s bank accounts.
Maqsood Chaprasi Sudden Death
Maqsood Chaprasi was discovered deceased in his Dubai apartment two days ago. He was said to have died of a heart attack. There is, however, talk of foul play. Maqsood Chaprasi allegedly had marks on his hands, according to reports.
Dr. Rizwan, the former Director of the FIA, is alleged to have died of heart arrest as well. In the Ramzan Sugar Mills case, he presided over the whole FIA probe into Shehbaz Sharif and his family.
Sharif Family Money laundering case
Maqsood was named as a co-accused and a crucial role in the Rs16 billion money laundering case against Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shehbaz.
Former Prime Minister Imran Khan has mentioned Maqsood Chaprasi and the allegations levelled against him on several occasions. Imran Khan’s repeated mention of the incident reignited the controversy over money laundering and the PML-alleged N’s involvement.
It was discovered that approximately Rs. 25 billion in deposits were received in the bank accounts of several low-wage employees of the Sharif family’s Ramzan Sugar Mills Ltd and Al-Arabia Sugar Mills, as well as accounts of bogus firms set up and managed by the Sharif group, between 2008 and 2018. A total of Rs. 3.7 billion was received in the bank account of a peon, Malik Maqsood, and another Rs. 2.8 billion was received in the account of one Haji Naeem.
