However, mistakes can be made, which is exactly what happened when a person sent a "Dear Prime Minister" to Indian actor Imran Khan instead of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan, who is set to take oath as Prime Minister of Pakistan on August 14.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on August 3 had summoned Mr. Khan, 65, in the case.

Imran Khan has 15 days to submit his response to the questionnaire.

I feel a bit bad for anyone called Imran Khan tbh.

The official said that Mr Khan appreciated the efforts of NAB for curbing corruption and quoted him as saying that everyone should be equal in the eyes of law. Former Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pervez Khattak, and former Speaker of Provincial Assembly, Asad Qaiser, accompanied Mr. Khan to the NAB's Peshawar office, where he stayed for an hour.

Matthew Seiyefa Appointed Acting DG Of DSS, Meets Osinbajo
Seiyefa who replaces th sacked DG, Lawal Musa Daura, was in the villa ostensibly to receive briefing from the Acting President. Osinbajo is acting president for Buhari, who last week left for a 10-day holiday in Britain.

The PTI chairman was issued a notice by the ECP for casting his ballot in front of cameras on July 25, in direct violation of the electoral body's code of conduct.

The NAB wanted to question Khan as part of the preliminary probe into allegations that the cricketer-turned-politician caused Rs 2.17 million loss to the provincial exchequer by using the provincial government's helicopter for over 72 hours.

Certain government officials and Khattak have already appeared before the combined investigation team in the same inquiry.

The chairman had also asked the KP NAB director general to find out if the former chief minister had the power to hand over "sensitive" assets such as helicopters for non-governmental usage. However; if he had used a private company's choppers, it would have cost him an hourly charge of between Rs1million and Rs1.2 million for the Mi-17 and between Rs 0.5 million and Rs 0.6 million for the Ecureuil.
