The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has issued a notice to Multan’s ‘richest’ beggar, Shaukat ‘Bikhari’, after finding out his assets, ARY News reported. 

The notice was sent to Shaukat as the FBR unearthed Rs1.7 million deposit in his bank account, while his children are enrolled in an expensive school.

FBR asked the beggar to show the sources of his income and why he had failed to submit his tax returns. FBR also questioned how he managed to buy life insurance of Rs10 million for his children. 


Some reports claim that Shaukat absconded after receiving the notice from FBR. A team has been formed to trace his whereabouts. 

A video went viral on social media showing Shaukat saying that he is a resident of Multan’s Shah Jamal area and had been begging in the area and earning Rs1,000 per day.
