NAB opposes bail plea of Khawaja Asif

31

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Tuesday has opposed the bail plea of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Asif in assets case.

The anti-graft watchdog, in its reply submitted in the Lahore High Court (LHC), stated NAB launched assets beyond means inquiry against Khawaja Asif is according to the law as assets do not match with his income.

The NAB further said that the PML-N stalwart failed to give response in assets and money laundering charges.

The bureau has pleaded with the court to reject the plea of the PML-N leader as an investigation against him is still underway.

The anti-graft watchdog accused that a bank peon in Lahore had submitted over Rs28 million to the bank account of Khawaja Asif following the orders of senior officers.—INP
