Property dealings of Saad Rafique found to be ‘suspicious’: NAB DG

Lahore (Staff Report): The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Lahore Director General Shahzad Saleem has revealed that the property dealings of Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique have been found to be ‘suspicious’.

While talking to the media on Wednesday, the official said the NAB had not leaked any documents regarding any political leader, adding that the accountability watchdog will continue to work earnestly and uncover the truth publically.

To a query regarding former director general Lahore Development Authority Ahad Cheema, Saleem said the suspect has been remanded by the court and is being investigated in multiple cases.

“After initiating the probe into Paragon Housing Society, we found out that Cheema and his family members were illegally benefitting from their involvement in a public sector scheme”, he said added, “The bank accounts of Ahad Cheema and his family members went up considerably.”

The NAB had also summoned Saad Rafique and his brother Salman in the ongoing probe.

On the other hand, the Railways minister had claimed before the apex court that he had no link with the Paragon Society.
