According to CDA officials, the suspensions are the result of an ongoing FIA investigation into a fraudulent allotment scandal that was uncovered last year. The scandal is estimated to be worth Rs. 6.9 billion. As a result, CDA Chairman Capt. (Retd.) Anwar-ul-Haq ordered an internal investigation and instructed the FIA to investigate the matter further.

Afnan Alam and several former CDA members have been arrested in connection to the FIA inquiry. 9 CDA officers, comprising three Patwaris, an Assistant Director, and a dealing assistant, are also detained. However, eleven more officers purportedly implicated in the Land Department corruption case, along with former Director Sardar Anwar, a tehsildar, and property dealers, are still at large.
