Paragon scandal suspect Qaiser Amin moved to hospital after cardiac issues
LAHORE: Former Pakistan Muslim League-N MPA Qaiser Amin Butt, the key accused in the Paragon Housing scam, was shifted to the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) on Saturday due to cardiac issues.
Butt is under the custody of National Accountability Bureau in the Paragon scam along with Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz leader Khawaja Saad Rafique and his brother Khawaja Salman Rafique.
As per details, Butt was taken to the hospital after he complained about the pain in heart; his initial test reports were unsatisfactory, sources said.
Last month, in a major development, Qaiser Amin Butt, a director of the Paragon City (Pvt) Limited, became an approver against PML-N stalwart Khawaja Saad Rafique in the Paragon City scandal.
The Paragon City director, who is also considered to be a close friend of the PML-N leader, recorded his confession before the NAB chief.
Sources said he spilled the beans during his statement, pointing to several other big names’ involvement in the scandal.
The anti-graft watchdog arrested Qaiser Amin Butt from Khairpur where he is said to have gone to evade his arrest following the Bureau’s probe into the housing society scandal.
NAB had launched an investigation into the scandal after protests by dozens of victims against the housing society fraud.
