Interim bail of Khokhar brothers extended until Jan 30
LAHORE: The session court of Lahore, on Saturday, accorded an approval to extend the interim bail of Khokhar brothers until January 30.
According to details, the court was hearing the bail plea of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) MNA Afzal Khokhar, MPA Saiful Malook and their brother Shafi Khokhar.
The session court then granted another extension of 11 days in the interim bails of Khokhar brothers in a case pertaining to illegal occupation of land.
The Nawab Town police had registered a first information report (FIR) against them on charges of land grabbing.
Earlier, on Jan 6, outgoing Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar ordered the Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) to bring an end to the illegal occupation of land by Khokhar Palace in Lahore.
The top judge had earlier taken notice of a complaint made against the Khokhar brothers by an overseas Pakistani who accused them of illegally occupying his land and building Khokhar Palace there.
On Dec 25, Afzal was taken into custody from the Lahore registry but was released on post-arrest bail by a judicial magistrate the next day. According to a report submitted by the ACE, the Khokhar brothers have encroached upon 40 kanals of land in Nawab Town.
