SC Judge Justice Maqbool conducted the hearing in which the National Accountability Bureau (NAB)’s lawyer sought more time to file further records regarding the same case.

Advocate Ashtar Ausaf pleaded with the court to order a trial court that has been hearing the case to present its report as well.

Earlier, Khawaja brothers’ bail was turned down by the Lahore High Court (LHC).

On Feb 11, an accountability court in Lahore issued an arrest warrant for Qaiser Amin Butt, the director of Paragon Housing Society and the primary accused person in the Paragon City Housing reference who has turned witness for the prosecution against the Khawaja brothers.
