UKIP has suspended Yorkshire and the Humber MEP Amjad Bashir, pending an investigation into "extremely serious financial issues".
The sixty two year old, who moved to Bradford with his family when he was eight , was elected to the European Parliament last year and is UKIP's small and medium business spokesman.
UKIP say they have suspended Mr Bashir while party officials carry out investigations into a number of issues which it considers to be extremely serious.
Mr Bashir has been informed of the specifics of the investigations which include unanswered financial and employment questions, interference with UKIP candidate selection processes and a continued affiliation with Mujeeb Bhutto, despite the party’s protests against Mr Bhutto’s involvement with Mr Bashir or UKIP.
"The UK Independence Party has a zero-tolerance policy and takes the matters at hand extremely seriously.
"The allegations against Mr Bashir are of a grave nature and we will be forwarding our evidence obtained so far to the police.
"UKIP will not tolerate anyone abusing their positions in the party, as we have a firm commitment to differing ourselves from the existing political classes.
"As a result, Mr Bashir’s involvement with the party was suspended today with immediate effect pending further investigations."

This weekend sees the return of the RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch, an initiative which encourages thousands around the UK to pick an hour over the weekend to discover wildlife in their gardens.
Budding bird watchers are encouraged to register in advance to get their free information pack, then take one hour to watch and record the number of birds in the garden or open space and submit the results.
The initiative has been taking place since 1979. Results enable the RSPB to monitor trends and understand how birds are doing and take steps to put them right.
