LAHORE: PML-N leaders Khwaja Saad Rafique and Khwaja Salman Rafique appeared before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Lahore here on Tuesday and recorded their statements in the Paragon Housing Society case.
Fearing arrest by NAB, the Khwaja brothers have already secured protective bail from the Lahore High Court till Oct 24.
The NAB is investigating the brothers for allegedly exchanging their 50-kanal piece of land with ‘developed plots’ measuring 40 kanal in the Paragon Housing Society through an agreement.
The bureau has asked them to explain under what ‘formula’ they got 40 kanal of developed plots in the housing scheme in exchange for a piece of raw land in 2016.
“The Khwaja brothers would not have got more than 16 kanals if this deal had been made on existing market practices,” the NAB claims.
The brothers, however, defended themselves saying the land exchange had been made in a legal way.
