PU Former Vice Chancellor case: Accountability Court gives verdict on plea

LAHORE – An Accountability Court on Monday has announced verdict on the NAB plea against Punjab University former Vice Chancellor.

AC sent Punjab University former vice-chancellor Dr Mujahid Kamran and five former registrars to jail on 14-day judicial remand in illegal appointments case.

Earlier, National Accountability Bureau (NAB) officials produced Mujahid Kamran, Dr Auranzeb, Kamran Abid, Dr Liaqat Ali, Dr Ras Saud and Amin Athar before Accountability Court Judge Syed Najamul Hassan on expiry of their physical remand.

The NAB prosecutor submitted that investigations had been completed and physical remand was not required any longer. He pleaded with the court to send the accused to jail on judicial remand.

However, the defence lawyer opposed the judicial remand plea saying that all allegations levelled against the accused were baseless. He requested the court to discharge the accused.
