NAB initiates inquiry against PML-N’s Marriyum Aurangzeb: sources
ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has initiated an inquiry against Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader Marriyum Aurangzeb, sources informed ARY News on Tuesday.
According to details, the former information minister is accused of running PML-N’s advertisement campaign through the plundered money from the national exchequer.
Sources said the anti-corruption watchdog has sought records from various departments regarding the assets owned by the PML-N firebrand.
Earlier today, official from NAB arrested PML-N key leader Khawaja Saad Rafique and his brother Khawaja Salman Rafique after Lahore High Court rejected their bail plea in the Paragon Society scam.
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.
Last month, Qaiser Amin Butt, a director of the Paragon Housing Society, was arrested and had agreed to become an approver and recorded his statement before the chairman NAB.
Sources privy to the matter informed ARY News that Qaiser, who is a close friend of Khawaja Saad Rafique, revealed that Paragon Society was not approved by the Lahore Development Authority (LDA) and Khawaja brothers (Khawaja Saad Rafique and Khawaja Salman Rafique) were the beneficial owners of the housing scheme.
