Aleem Khan’s bail plea adjourned till 16th


LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) Monday adjourned the hearing of a bail petition, filed by former senior provincial minister Abdul Aleem Khan in the offshore companies and assets case till April 16.

The petition was fixed before LHC bench, headed by Justice Malik Shahzad Ahmad Khan for Monday, but it was not taken up for hearing.

Abdul Aleem Khan, through his bail petition, had argued that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) arrested him in connection with an illegal assets case, though he extended complete cooperation to the NAB authorities in investigation.

He contended that all charges were baseless and the Bureau did not have any evidence against him. He contended that the case was fabricated and pleaded with the court to grant him benefit of bail, as investigation had been completed in the case and no more confinement was required.
