LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Thursday sought reply from the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman and others within two weeks on a petition questioning faulty investigation in illegal plots allotment case against Editor-in-Chief of Jang-Geo Group Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman.
A division bench comprising Justice Sardar Ahmad Naeem and Justice Farooq Haider passed the orders on a petition filed by Asad Khurral. A counsel on behalf of the petitioner argued that his client gave solid evidence to the Bureau against Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman and his family members -- Mir Ibrahim, Mir Ismail, Shaheena Shakil and others -- in illegal plots allotment case. However, the Bureau only arrested Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman, whereas no step had been taken against his family members, he added.
He submitted that the Bureau had failed to take appropriate action against the co-accused and it would benefit Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman at trial stage. He pleaded with the court to direct the Bureau for nominating the co-accused in the reference, besides placing their names on the Exit Control List (ECL).
The court after initial hearing sought reply from the NAB authorities within two weeks and adjourned further hearing. In 1986, Mir Ibrahim Rahman was eight years old, Ayesha Rahman was six, Asma Rahman was four and Mir Ismail Rahman was one year old.
