LAHORE: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Tuesday arrested former police official of Barki in Punjab on charges of corruption.
Nadeem Ahmad has defrauded many people and collected Rs3 million as bribe and property worth millions, and is accused of being involved in the Paragon Housing Society scam.
In June, NAB grilled former federal minister for railways Khawaja Saad Rafique regarding the ownership of Paragon Housing Society. He appeared before a combined investigation team (CIT) at the NAB Complex in Thokar Niaz Beg and remained there for over an hour.
An official told The Express Tribune that Rafique had denied the ownership or holding shares in the housing society. The minister told the investigators that he had already submitted an affidavit before the apex court in this regard, he said.
The minister admitted that he had a few houses and land in the society but was not a shareholder, the official said. However, NAB believed that Rafique had considerable shares in the society and was trying to establish a link to proceed further.
