Ashiyana scam: Nadeem Zia’s brother Shahid Shafique remanded
LAHORE (92 News) – An accountability court hearing the Ashiyana-e-Iqbal corruption scandal case granted a seven-day physical remand of Shahid Shafiq — the CEO of Bismillah Construction Company.
Earlier, the NAB Lahore produced Shahid Shafique before the accountability court.
The NAB counsel told the court that Shahid acquired the contract of Ashiyana Housing Scheme through fake documents that caused a loss of billion of rupees to the national exchequer.
“The torture accusations levelled against NAB are baseless,” the prosecutor told the court. However, Shafiq’s lawyer rejected the medical report.
The accountability court judge reserved the verdict after listening to the arguments of both parties. Later, the court announced the verdict and handed over Shahid into the custody of NAB for five days.
