ISLAMABAD: Former Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority chairman Tauqir Sadiq, allegedly involved in a Rs82 billion scam, has been shifted to Pakistan from United Arab Emirates.
Sadiq was brought back to Pakistan by a National Accountability Bureau (NAB) investigator Waqas Khan through a private airliner, which landed at the Islamabad's Benazir International airport here on Tuesday morning.
Sources in the NAB said the authorities had received information that two persons belonging to Central Punjab have been paid a huge sum of money to attack the NAB convoy carrying Sadiq from Islamabad Airport to a NAB detention centre.
The precise information was conveyed to the bureau by the UAE authorities including the name of one of the possible attackers, potentially hired by influential elements who don't want Sadiq to disclose their names during investigations. The attacker's name is believed to be Zeeshan.

ISLAMABAD, Nov 11: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) set aside on Monday the conviction of Tauqir Sadiq, a former chairman of the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra), by an accountability court on May 7.
The accountability court of Rawalpindi had sentenced the former Ogra chairman to three years in prison for failing to appear at the hearing of a corruption reference against him.
An IHC division bench comprising Justice Riaz Ahmed Khan and Justice Noorul Haq N. Qureshi, however, did not grant bail to Mr Sadiq.
Mr Sadiq, the principal accused in a Rs82 billion scam, fled abroad after the Supreme Court had declared his appointment as Ogra chief illegal on Nov 25, 2011, and ordered the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to start an investigation against him.
During the hearing, NAB's Additional Deputy Prosecutor General Barrister Saeedur Rehman presented before the court a detailed record of Mr Sadiq's stay and travel abroad while he was a proclaimed offender.
He said that the former Ogra chief had shown himself as a 'cash desk clerk' in 'Al Noor Bakers' for obtaining a UAE visa.
According to the travel details, Mr Sadiq, whose name had been placed on the Exit Control List on January 1 last year, crossed the Torkham border and entered Afghanistan on June 18. He got an Afghan visa the same day despite the fact that it was a holiday there.
On June 21, Sadiq fled to the UAE wherefrom he went to Sri Lanka on Aug 19. He then went to Nepal on Nov 28 and on Jan 27 again entered the UAE where Interpol traced him and arrested him on Jan 28.
Mr Sadiq was extradited to Pakistan on July 9.
The NAB prosecutor said Mr Sadiq could have challenged the conviction within 10 days after the judgment was announced, under Section 32 of the NAO 1999. However, he had challenged the conviction after a lapse of five months.

Tauqir was the main accused in 82 billion rupees OGRA corruption case. He has finally been arrested in UAE.

According to previous report, in the latest twist in efforts to bring Sadiq back, a Pakistan embassy official met him in the foreign jail and was told by Sadiq that he was ready to surrender voluntarily.
An accountability court in Islamabad sent Tauqir Sadiq, the fugitive former chief of the Oil and Gas Regularity Authority (Ogra), on a 14-day physical remand on Tuesday.
