The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has initiated an inquiry against Mehmood Khan over misappropriation charges in Bagh Dheri irrigation channel project, ARY News reported on Saturday.
The anti-graft watchdog has summoned details of Bagh Dheri irrigation channel work in Swat and allocated funds from PTI leader and former chief minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Mehmood Khan.
