National Accountability Bureau Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa on Saturday arrested former Ayub Medical College principal Professor Dr Muhammad Ayub who is currently working as a medical expert with the Higher Education Regulatory Authority (HERA).

Professor Muhammad Ayub had been arrested for stripping parents and medical students of over Rs550 million.

NAB produced Ayub in the court of Judge Muhammad Ibrahim Khan where following a thorough interrogation and hearing, Ayub was subsequently put behind bars at Central Prison Peshawar.

NAB will file a corruption reference over the next few days. Once the reference has been approved, the accused will face trial.
