The accountability court has fixed August 8 as the date to indict the Khawaja brothers (Saad and Salman Rafique) in the Paragon Housing Society case.
As per details, An Accountability Court of Lahore took up the Paragon case on Tuesday (July 16) where both Khawaja siblings were produced by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) under tight security. After hearing arguments in the case, the court extended their judicial remand till August 08, deciding to indict them in next hearing.
On December 11, 2018, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) arrested Saad Rafique and his brother Khawaja Salman Rafique from the LHC premises after the high court had dismissed their request for an extension in the pre-arrest bail in corruption cases.
NAB, while revealing grounds for their arrest stated that Khawaja brothers had started a housing project named Air Avenue – which was later on changed into Paragon City Limited. NAB has maintained that the record showed that it was an illegal housing society. The anti-graft body has accused Khawaja brothers and others of defrauding large members of society. NAB said that the accused also embezzled the illegal housing society projects funds for personal gains, adding that the accused were collecting heavy amounts despite clear directions from the Lahore Development Authority.
