Khawaja Saad Rafique arrest: LHC gives verdict on bail plea

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday gave verdict on the bail plea of the former Railways Minister Saad Rafique.

LHC granted extension in interim bail of former railways minister, Khawaja Saad Rafique and his brother Khawaja Salman Rafique, in a corruption case until December 5.

The extension was ordered by the LHC Judge Justice Tariq Abbasi. The petitioner, who is the ex-minister himself, claimed in his plea that he was not involved in any corruption and cooperated with the probe team to the core.

He requested the court to accept extension in pre-arrest bail.

Deputy Prosecutor General NAB , Chaudhry Khaliquz Zaman, told the court that arrest orders of the PML-N leader had already been issued.

The court sought the arrest orders, to which, NAB official replied that they were in bureau’s Lahore office. The LHC judge expressed resentment and said the NAB team didn’t look serious to nab the person it was investigating.
