An accountability court on Saturday (Feb 2) sent former railway minister Khawaja Saad Rafique and his brother, Salman Rafique, to jail on 14-day judicial remand in connection with Paragon Housing Society scam. National accountability court has requested for an extension in their physical remand.
Khawaj brothers were arrested on December 11, 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.
Earlier in a press release, NAB Lahore stated, “Accused Saad Rafique along with his benamidaar wife Ghazala Saad Rafique, brother Salman Rafique in association with Qaiser Amin Butt and Nadeem Zia established a housing project in the name of Air Avenue which was converted into a new housing project namely M/S Paragon City Pvt Limited. Record shows that M/S Paragon City is an illegal society.” “Accused in collusion, connivance and collaboration of Qaiser Amin Butt and Nadeem Zia cheated the members of public at large and obtained illegal pecuniary benefits from the funds of said illegal housing project,” it added.
