An official of the Punjab Highways Department illegally employed 16 individuals in Bahawalpur and made them work for eight months without pay, it emerged Sunday.

The suspect, identified as Hamza Habib, was a Grade-4 officer in the Maintenance and Repair Department of Punjab Highways.

He had taken millions from residents in return for the jobs, according to the police. He gave them salary for a month and then never paid them for the rest of the months.

The employees then went to the main office to complain about the delayed payments after which the truth came out.

The highway executive officer has suspended the official and begun an investigation into the crime.

The individuals who were defrauded have demanded that the suspect be arrested and their money be given back to them.

They have also filed an application against him in the Punjab Anti-Corruption Department.
