LAHORE (92 News) – An accountability court on Thursday extended the judicial remand of Khawaja Asif in the assets beyond means case until June 17.

Owing to transfer of the judge, the case has been referred to the accountability court No 4. Judge Sheikh Sajjad Ahmed heard the case and ordered to complete the reference at the earliest.

On December 29, the NAB had arrested Khawaja Asif in the assets beyond means case.

According to the NAB, Khawaja Asif Asif held an iqama (work permit) from 2004 to 2008 and he had earned a total of Rs136 million for his services as a consultant legal adviser. Before being elected as senator in 1991, Khawaja Asif owned assets worth Rs5.1 million. By 2018, this figure had ballooned to Rs221 million.

He, according to the NAB, was running a 'benami' company in the name of his employee, Tariq Mir. A sum of Rs400 million was deposited in the bank account of the company, titled 'Tariq Mir and Company', but there was no information about the sources of income.
