An accountability court extended on Tuesday the judicial remand of PML-N leader Khawaja Saad Rafique and his brother, Khawaja Salman Rafique, till August 8 in the Paragon housing case. They were arrested on December 11, 2018.
The brothers have been accused of misusing their authority and causing billions of rupees loss to the national exchequer. According to NAB, Saad Rafique colluded with his brother, and Qaiser Amin Butt among three others to form the Paragon City housing society. The Lahore Development Authority says the housing project was unapproved.
A report on people who facilitated the embezzlement of funds was submitted in the court.
NAB also submitted the copy of the reference against the brothers. The court is expected to indict them at the next hearing.
