April 01, 2020

An accountability court on Tuesday allowed transit remand of Jang group editor-in-chief Mir Shakilur Rehman to attend funeral of his elder brother in Karachi.
The court observed that the NAB authorities will take all measures for the travel of the suspect at their own risk and cost.
Mir Shakil is on physical remand with the NAB following his arrest in a case of 54-kanal land allegedly allotted to him in 1986 by then Punjab chief minister Mian Nawaz Sharif. Earlier counsel of Mir told the court that elder brother of the petitioner Mir Javaidur Rehman passed away in Karachi. He said funeral and burial of the deceased will be held in Karachi. Therefore he said the petitioner needed to go to Karachi to attend the last rituals of his real brother.
On a court query the NAB special prosecutor said that the bureau had no objection keeping in view of the justice and on humanitarian ground.
The NAB alleged that the media tycoon illegally obtained exemption of 54 plots each measuring one-kanal in Johar Town as no person can get more than 15 kanals land under the exemption policy.
