LAHORE: An accountability court on Thursday handed over Lahore Development Authority (LDA) former director general (DG) Ahad Cheema to National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on an 11-day physical remand.
Cheema was presented before accountability court judge Mohammad Azam, who granted the physical remand after a NAB officer submitted before the court that Ahad Cheema didn’t cooperate in the investigation and misused his authorities.
The court has directed the NAB to submit case challan in March.
Earlier on Tuesday, Ahad Cheema was arrested in relation to the Ashiana Housing Scheme corruption scandal.
Cheema was taken into custody by the anti-graft watchdog from the office of Punjab Power Company in Gulberg and faces charges of illegally allotting land for the housing scheme in Lahore. The arrest came after Cheema failed to appear before the bureau despite several notices.
