LAHORE—An accountability court in Lahore on Monday extended the judicial remand of Mir Shakeel-ur-Rahman, owner of Jang Group, in a graft case for 22 days.
Along with the former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Mir is facing a case of illegal land allotment.
According to the National Accountability Bureau’s reference, then chief minister of Punjab Nawaz Sharif allowed an exemption under which Rahman bought 54 one-kanal plots. This was, according to NAB, against the exemption policy in 1986.
Keeping in view the SOPs for COVID-19, Rahman was not presented in the court. Duty Judge Jawadul Hasan extended the judicial remand for 22 days and ordered the presence of Rahman on July 21.
NAB arrested Rahman on March 12 this year.
