LAHORE: Former railways minister Khwaja Saad Rafiq and his brother former provincial minister Khwaja Salman Rafiq Monday moved the Lahore High Court (LHC) for bail in Paragon City case, filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

The Khwaja brothers filed their bail petitions through Advocate Amjad Pervez, pleading that NAB implicated them in a case without any ground.

The brothers said they extended full cooperation to NAB during investigation and furnished all documents to prove that they had no link with Paragon City Society. However, they said NAB arrested them on political grounds.

The petitioners said they had been sent to jail on judicial remand and there was no reason to keep them behind the bars. They asked the court to grant them post-arrest bail.

NAB had arrested the Khwaja brothers on Dec 11, 2018 after the LHC had withdrawn the relief of pre-arrest bail they enjoyed for almost three months. An accountability court had sent them on judicial remand on Feb 2 last.
