Islamabad Accountability Court on Wednesday granted one day transit remand to Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Asif in assets beyond income case.

According to the details, the PML-N leader will be produced before Lahore Accountability Court on Thursday.

On Tuesday, the NAB arrested PML-N leader Khawaja Asif in the assets beyond income case. He has been arrested from outside the house of PML-N leader Ahsan Iqbal. PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb has confirmed the arrest of Khawaja Asif.

Sources said that Khawaja Asif could not answer to his assets worth Rs 260 million. Before attaining a public position, the worth of Khawaja Asif’s assets stood at Rs5.1 million which was increased up to Rs221 million till 2008, according to NAB investigators.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz threatened the government of befitting the response for ‘kidnapping’ party lawmaker Khawaja Asif earlier Tuesday if he is not released shortly.

During a media talk, Maryam Nawaz said earlier he could not convince the investigation committee on how he possessed wealth beyond his income.

Government is visibly fraught with distress over Pakistan Democratic Movement, said Maryam, adding that now it is going for desperate measures.

Khawaja Asif’s arrest goes on to show how anxious the government has become as it reckoned the power of PDM, said Maryam Nawaz.
