LAHORE: An accountability court here on Monday extended judicial remand of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khwaja Saad Rafique and his brother Khwaja Salman Rafique till January 24 in Paragon Housing Society scandal.

During the hearing, the court directed for handing over copy of ex-director of the Paragon Housing Society Qaisar Ameen Butt’s statement to the Khawaja brothers. On April 26, the NAB Lahore had approved filing of a reference against the Khawaja brothers and Nadeem Zia for the alleged corruption.

Qaiser Amin Butt, the main accused, in the case was also included in the inquiry initiated by the NAB and arrested in November last year. Later, he agreed to turn approver against the Khawaja brothers and Zia.

On December 11, 2018 Khawaja brothers were detained by the accountability watchdog after the Lahore High Court (LHC) rejected their bail plea.
