The Accountability Court has extended by 15 days the physical remand of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Saad Rafique and his brother, Salman Rafique, in connection to the Paragon Housing Society scam.
National Accountability Bureau (NAB) officials presented the PML-N leader and his brother before the court and sought a 15-days extension in their physical remand. Saad was brought to Lahore from Islamabad where he was on transit remand since December 20 to attend the NA session.
On December 11, NAB arrested the Rafique brothers after the Lahore High Court (LHC) rejected their request for an extension in their pre-arrest bail in the case pertaining to the housing society scam.
Heavy contingents of police had been deployed and roads leading to the court had been blocked for the hearing.
Saad and Salman will now be presented before court on fifth of August.
