A Lahore accountability court remanded on Wednesday PML-N MNA Khawaja Asif in the National Accountability Bureau’s custody in an assets-beyond-means case.

Asif was arrested in the case on Dec 29, 2020. He appeared
before the court for the second time on Wednesday.

NAB officials requested the court to investigate the accused
about the dealings of Tariq Mir & Co and his links with the company.

Asif’s attorney Farooq H Naek said the matter was being
investigated since March 2019. NAB officials want an accused to hang him in
front of them, he remarked.

Naek said that all of Asif’s assets mentioned by NAB were
declared in his returns statement.

But the court granted remanded the PML-N lawmaker in NAB
custody until January 22.
