Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), MNA Afzal Khokhar was arrested on Tuesday (Dec 25) outside court in connection with a land grabbing case. A case was registered against Afzal Khokhar on Monday (Dec 24).
As the hearing went underway, Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, directed the revenue department to recover 500 acre land from different occupants of the land including the 48 acre land occupied by Shafi Khokhar, Afzal’s elder bother. He also sought report from concerned authorities within seven days after determining whether the Khokhar brothers own the land where they presently live; “I know how you became a billionaire,” the chief justice told Afzal’s brother Shafiq Khokhar. “You have been grabbing land.” The court ordered the director general of the anti-corruption cell to investigate Khokhar brothers’ assets.
The court summoned the facilitators of the brothers. At least 35 complaints were registered against them. The chief justice told the PML-N lawmakers that they won’t be spared if they have ‘grabbed’ land in Lahore.
