Khawaja Saad Rafique in deep troubles

LAHORE: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Lahore office on Friday summoned details of assets of federal Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique and his brother, Khawaja Salman Rafique in an investigation pertaining to a housing scam.

The anti-corruption body is investigating the Ashiana Housing scam, in which millions of rupees were allegedly transferred into the account of Paragon Housing Society, which is said to have been owned by Saad Rafique and his brother, Punjab minister Khawaja Salman Rafique.

NAB has instructed Saad Rafique and Salman Rafique to submit their responses within a week.

Saad Rafique appeared before a three-member team of NAB on Wednesday, where he was grilled for two hours in connection with the scam. According to sources, the NAB team was dissatisfied with the responses given by the minister and his brother.
