LAHORE: An accountability court here extended the physical remand of PML-N leader Khawaja Saad Rafique and his brother Khawaja Salman Rafique by seven days.

Khawaja brothers are in NAB’s custody in the Paragon Housing case.

Amjad Pervaiz, counsel of Kh. Saad Rafique, argued that NAB no longer needs their physical remand and that the court should grant their judicial remand (where they are sent to jail instead of NAB custody) but the court granted NAB’s request.
