Mr. Ali has recently been appointed as auditor of XYZ Limited at its recent annual general meeting. Upon completion of his first audit of the company, he issues an un-qualified report to the company’s shareholders. On the basis of this audit report, the company successfully raised a loan of Rs. 500 million from a local bank.
Unfortunately, after 5 months of the loan obtained, the company announced its plan for going into liquidation stating a chance for bankruptcy. During the liquidation process, it revealed by the company’s liquidator that shares worth Rs. 500 million shown in the company’s balance sheet are not original in nature. Upon initial investigations, it was found that the transaction was fake but dully certified by the auditor knowingly on mere presentation of the associated documents.
The bank has filed a suit against the auditor of XYZ on the plea that the auditor should verify the originality of the transaction documents. But, the auditor argues that he was not supposed to verify originality of the documents, rather he was responsible to verify availability of the documents only.

Later, one of the company’s shareholders sued against the auditor for not performing his duty according to the related provisions and issued false statement to deceive the shareholders.
