Plots fraud: Ex-senator remanded in NAB custody


LAHORE: An accountability court on Friday handed over former senator Ammar Gulzar, owner of Pak Arab Housing Society, to National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on ten-day physical remand in plots fraud case.

Earlier, the NAB officials produced Ammar Gulzar before Accountability Court Judge Syed Najamul Hassan and submitted that the accused committed fraud and had sold files to people more than available plots in the second phase of his society.

They requested the court to grant physical remand of the accused for further investigation.

At this, the court handed over the accused to NAB on a ten-day physical remand and directed for his production on expiry of the remand term.

On Thursday, the bureau arrested Gulzar over the construction of illegal blocks as an extension of his project. According to the NAB officials, the owner of housing society was arrested from his house.

According to the reports, the society’s administration sold 5,200 kanal land to the citizens rather than 1,500 kanal of the allocation land. F-1, 2,3, C Pearl, and other illegal blocks were constructed for prowling the citizens.

Media reports further added that NAB officials have obtained the complete record of society from Lahore Development Authority (LDA) while the victims also protested for justice.
