LAHORE– The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday accepted to hear a bail petition filed by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) leader and Member of the National Assembly (MNA) Khawaja Saad Rafique and his brother Salman Rafique in the Paragon Housing Society scam.

Reportedly, the court has sought a response from the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on the matter and issued notice to submit its reply by March 6.

The petition mentioned that the NAB has so far failed to prove any corruption against the Khwaja brothers in the case.

The petition further stated that the Khwaja brothers have fully cooperated and provided complete record to the investigation team.

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

The NAB had launched an investigation into the alleged scam in November last year after a number of victims staged protests and held a press conference at the Lahore Press Club against what they termed the housing society’s fraud.
