Islamabad Accountability Court has extended physical remand of Pakistan Muslim League N Leader Ahsan Iqbal for seven days.

His remand extended in Narowal Sports City Scam case.

Islamabad Accountability Court has ordered National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to present Ahsan Iqbal on January 13.

Ahsan Iqbal is facing charges of misusing powers as he had illegally increased the construction cost of the sports city project from Rs300 million to Rs1000 million in accordance with the records scrutinised by NAB.

It is revealed that the Central Development Working Party (CDWP) had not been contacted for getting formal permission before hiking the cost.

The project was handed over to the province in 2012 under 18th Constitutional Amendment and Rs2000 million funds were released over recommendations of Iqbal but Ministry of Inter-Provincial Coordination had not issued any directions regarding the project.

The accused politician had intervened into a provincial project by misusing his authorities, whereas, the construction cost was increased up to Rs3 billion after reviewing PC-1.
