It is pertinent to mention here that the official from National Accountability Bureau (NAB), on December 11, had arrested Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Saad Rafique and his brother Khawaja Salman Rafique after Lahore High Court rejected their bail plea in Paragon Housing scam case.
Whereas the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Tuesday offloaded leader of the opposition in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz from a foreign airline’s flight at Lahore airport.
Sources confirmed that the PML-N leader was offloaded from the flight because of a NAB case pending against him.
