Both of the brothers were facing corruption inquiry in Paragon Housing Society scam.

A division bench of the Lahore High Court (LHC) on November 06 extended interim bail granted to PML-N leaders and directed the anti-graft body to decide their application for transfer of inquiry out of Lahore at the earliest.

As hearing resumed, the court asked the NAB prosecutor why NAB wanted to arrest them when they had left them at the mercy of the court. The court admonished the prosecutor after he failed to present record to justify arrest warrants against the Khawaja Brothers. The court showed his anger at the non-production of record and directed prosecutor to bring record and apprise the court of allegations which led to issuance of arrest warrants against both brothers.
