An accountability court on Wednesday handed over Lahore Waste Management Company's (LWMC) former managing director Waseem Ajmal to National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on a 10-day physical remand in Rs1 billion LWMC scam. Accountability Court Judge Ameer Muhammad Khan conducted the case proceedings wherein Waseem Ajmal was also produced.

The NAB prosecutor submitted that the accused was a grade-20 officer and he had served as LWMC managing director. He submitted that the accused had been arrested on the charges of embezzling over Rs1 billion in the LWMC project. He requested the court for granting 15-day remand of the accused for investigation. However, the defence counsel opposed the remand plea and arrest of his client in the case. He submitted that Waseem Ajmal would be promoted to Grade-21 after three months course.

The NAB prosecutor submitted that NAB Chairman’s permission was sought for the arrest of Grade-17 and above officers, in response to a court query. Waseem Ajmal told the court that he remained under NAB custody for 48 days in Saaf Pani case but he was not investigated for more than two hours.
