Mir Shakeel-ur-Rehman—the owner of Jang and Geo News has been arrested by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Thursday.
According to the details, the anti-corruption watchdog apprehended him in a case pertaining to a land scam. The details said that he appeared before the investigation team of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in Lahore but failed to give satisfactory answers to the questions.
NAB took him into custody after he failed to furnish the supportive evidence in connection with the land which he had acquired during the tenure of former three-time and ousted Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif.
As per the details, it was the second time when Mir Shakeel was summoned by the anti-corruption watchdog in the land scam. Last week on March 5, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had interrogated him for two hours in the same case related to the land scams.
