LAHORE (92 News) – The Supreme Court of Pakistan disposed of the case against the Khokhar brothers, directing the departments concerned to take action against them as per law.

The court remarked that the departments should take action what is necessary on merit.

It also directed the Khokhar brothers to approach the competent authority for getting their names removed from the exit control list.

Earlier, Additional Sessions Judge Shahzad Raza had granted bail to the Khokhar brothers in the land grabbing case. The court also ordered to release MNA Afzal Khokhar, Saiful Malook Khokhar and Malik Shafi Khokhar after furnishing surety bonds worth Rs 50,000 each.

Khokhar brothers granted interim bail in land grabbing case

On December 25, PML-N MNA Afzal Khokhar was arrested outside the Supreme Court Lahore Registry in a case of illegal occupation of land.

A first information report registered with the Nawab Town police by British resident Muhammad Ali Zafar said that a few years earlier, he had bought 34 marlas land situated across from his residence in the Sultanpura area.

The then-owner Tariq Mahmood had demarcated the land in his presence. He claimed that Khokhar Palace, the MNA’s residence, had since been built on his land.

The FIR said that the chief justice had directed those with complaints pertaining to land grabbing to file a case with police, and asked for action to be taken against Khokhar. Zafar granted one Fayyaz Ahmad the authority to fight the case on his behalf, as he had been residing in London for the last 20 years.
