The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has arrested Jang Group and Geo TV owner Mir Shakilur Rehman in Lahore. A NAB spokesperson has confirmed the arrest. He has been arrested because he was reportedly given illegal concessions by Nawaz Sharif, the former Punjab CM, on 54 plots in Lahore’s Johar Town in 1986. NAB was conducting an inquiry against him in the case.
He was arrested after he failed to submit a satisfactory answer to the bureau’s questions.
