Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Member of National Assembly (MNA) Khawaja Saad Rafique’s release on parole has been approved here on Sunday.
According to the details, the PML-N leader had submitted a plea to deputy commissioner, seeking to release him on parole for funeral and burial of his mother-in-law.
The concerned authorities have approved his bail on parole for three days (from October 27 to October 29).
Earlier, Accountability Court (AC) had rejected Khawaja brothers’ acquittal pleas and extended their judicial remand till October 30 in Paragon Housing Society reference.
On April 26, the NAB Lahore had approved filing of a reference against the Khawaja brothers and Nadeem Zia for the alleged corruption.
On December 11, 2018, Khawaja brothers were detained by the accountability watchdog after the Lahore High Court (LHC) rejected their bail plea.
The NAB had launched an investigation into the alleged scam in November last year after a number of victims staged protests and held a press conference at the Lahore Press Club against what they termed the housing society’s fraud.
