Lahore: National Accountability Bureau (NAB) officials has arrested Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Saad Rafique and his brother Khawaja Salman Rafique after Lahore High Court rejected their bail application.
The PML-N leader Khawaja Saad Rafique and his brother Khawaja Salman Rafique were arrested after the two-judge bench rejected their bail application after hearing arguments from NAB prosecutor.
During the hearing, Khawaja Saad Rafique's counsel told the court that his client has nothing to do with Paragon Housing Society before NAB officials took the duo into custody.
A large number of PML-N workers protested and raised pro-party slogans as Saad Rafique spoke to them outside the court against NAB officials' advice.
NAB had launched an investigation into the alleged scam in November after a number of victims staged protests and held a press conference at the Lahore Press Club against what they termed housing society's fraud.
The anti-graft authority had arrested former Lahore Development Authority (LDA) director general Ahad Khan Cheema and others over allegations of corruption in Ashiana Iqbal Housing Society scam.
During investigations, it was revealed that Cheema had misused his authority and received huge sums of money in return for awarding the contract of the project to Casa Developers. The amount was allegedly paid from the account of the Paragon Housing Society.
