LAHORE: Due to Additional and Sessions Judge Naeem Shaukat being on leave, hearing of the petition filed against the physical remand of Khawar Maneka was adjourned until October 2.
The plea by the ex-husband of the former first lady was due to be held on Saturday (today). Maneka is in the custody of the Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE), Punjab on an eight-day physical remand.
On Tuesday, a court in Okara had granted an eight-day physical remand of Maneka; a day after he was apprehended by the ACE in Lahore, on charges of raising structures on government land.
According to the ACE, an inquiry was initiated following a reference filed against him by the Okara deputy commissioner. The reference alleged that he had unlawfully set up a marriage hall and 26 shops on a site designated for a graveyard. – INP
