Assets case: AC extends Kh Asif’s judicial remand


An accountability court in Lahore on Thursday has extended the judicial remand of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) lawmaker Khawaja Asif in assets beyond income case.

The hearing was presided over by the duty judge of the accountability court, Sheikh Sajjad Ahmed as the judge of AC court no 2, hearing the case has been transferred.

The court after extending Asif’s judicial remand until June 17, adjourned the case. On Wednesday, a Lahore High Court (LHC) judge had refused to hear a petition moved by PML-N MNA Khawaja Asif seeking post-arrest bail in an assets case.

Judge Asjad Javed Ghural, a member of the division bench that was to take up the petition, recused himself from the case, after which the matter was referred to the LHC chief justice to fix it before another bench for hearing.—INP
