ISLAMABAD: Ziaur Rehman, the younger brother of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, has been removed as Commissioner for the Afghan refugees.

An inquiry has been ordered against him. The federal cabinet took this decision. Shehzad Arbab, Adviser to the Prime Minister for Establishment was directed to prepare an investigative report on the matter.

The report will determine how Ziaur Rehman was appointed as the commissioner of the Afghan refugees without belonging to any cadre of the civil service, said an official.

There will be an investigation regarding how and why Ziaur Rehman was inducted in the Provincial Management Service.

When asked about the government action against his brother, Fazlur Rehman said it was a service matter and he has nothing to do with it.

During the previous government, Ziaur Rehman was given this senior bureaucratic position. At the time, some had objected to his promotion, but the government had ignored the criticism.

The present regime dubbed it as nepotism and vowed to dispense with it without loss of any time. The official said that a fair and transparent inquiry would be carried out and those responsible would be duly punished as provided in the law.

He said even before made the commissioner of Afghan refugees, Ziaur Rehman had held some official positions, which were not according to the law.

He said the investigation would cover all the aspects.
