LAHORE:     An accountability court on Tuesday extended Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leader Aleem Khan’s judicial remand till April 11 in a case pertaining to his offshore companies and alleged possession of assets beyond his known sources of income.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor sought an extension in his judicial remand for further investigation into the accusations against him. He was sent to jail on March 5 after the court dismissed NAB’s appeal to extend his physical remand in their custody.
On March 18, the court extended his judicial remand, while Khan’s defence counsel argued that a reference against his client had not been filed yet. To which the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) prosecutor responded that a final report against him was being compiled.
He was arrested by the NAB in Lahore on February 6. He faces multiple inquiries, including one involving offshore company Hexam Investment Overseas Ltd, one for owning assets beyond his known sources of income, and inquiries into his involvement in the Park View Housing Society, River Age Housing Society, and Multan Road.
Subsequently, he resigned as Punjab’s local government minister.
