Accountability court extended 14 days remand for 2 builders detained in connection with fraud investigation in Air Force Housing Scheme Karachi (FHSK).
During the hearing, the court was told how the land was acquired in the name of 'martyrs and war heroes' but hardly any units were allotted to the martyrs.
The investigating officer described how some officers of the Pak Air Force (PAF) lured their comrades to purchase housing units and made crores of rupees in this regard.
It may be recalled that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) arrested Tanveer Ahmed and Bilal Tanveer, affiliated with Maxim Properties.
He is alleged to have allegedly deprived the public of Rs 18 billion in the name of investing in the Air Force Housing Scheme Karachi.
Investigating Officer Aslam Pervez Abaru presented the two accused before the Accountability Court Administrative Judge Farq Anwar Qazi and requested extension of the accused's physical remand for further investigation.
The investigating officer submitted a progress report regarding the investigation of the case, saying that further evidence came on record during the interrogation that both the accused along with Pak Air Force officers were involved in deception on a large scale.
