Govt-SC tussle: Zafar Qureshi gets retirement notification

According to sources, the notification has been received by Zafar Qureshi and he will retire on September 30.

Qureshi is the investigating officer in the National Insurance Company Limited (NICL) case in which Moonis Elahi, the son of former Punjab chief minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, has been implicated.

Qureshi had been suspended twice while investigating the multi-billion-rupee scam. He was reinstated to his post on August 4 after the Supreme Court quashed his July 4 suspension order.
