On Tuesday night, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) detained Khawaja Asif, senior PML-N leader and former federal minister, pertaining to assets beyond means.
Maryam Aurangzeb confirmed the news. The former minister had been facing charges regarding irregularities in a housing society. NAB arrested he PML-N leader from Ahsan Iqbal’s house in Islamabad.
“Evidence collected so far prima facie reveals that you established a housing project – namely Kent View Housing Society Sialkot – which has been operating illegally,” NAB’s call-up notice said.
The NAB alleges that he illegally sold plots over the approved layout plan of 137 kanals in collaboration with society’s management. It claimed that the PML-N leader in connivance with revenue authorities obtained relevant approvals even though society was in the state land’s illegal occupation.
