LAHORE: An accountability court in Lahore on Monday extended the judicial remand of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Aleem Khan by 14 days, Radio Pakistan reported.
The PTI leader is being investigated by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for owning assets beyond known means of income and an offshore compan.
NAB had arrested Khan on February 6, 2019, when he appeared before a combined investigations team. It was alleged that Aleem, being a public office holder, acquired huge assets and established offshore companies. It was stated that he owned apartments and maintained large bank accounts.
Accusations were rife that accumulating all this wealth and assets was not possible taking the suspect’s known sources of income.
