RAWALPINDI:



Special Judge Central court on Thursday granted a post-arrest bail to Pakistan Muslim League-N MNA Anjum Aqeel Khan who faces corruption charges.


Judge Syed Akhlaq Ahmed granted bail to the Islamabad MNA and directed him to furnish a surety bond worth Rs200, 000 for his release in the case.

Shahbahat Ali, a college teacher, had earlier registered a case against the legislator alleging that Anjum had sold a plot for Rs950,000 to him in the National Police Foundation housing scheme.

However, the plot never materialised and neither was the huge sum returned by the accused.

The MNA’s lawyer Shaukat Aziz Siddiqi has maintained that his client had made a compromise with the complainant and had returned the money.

The court also extended interim bail granted to Anjum till September 7 in another case of alleged corruption in purchases of land for National Police Foundation in Islamabad. The court extended the interim bail of DIG Laiq Khan till the next date of hearing too.

Anjum Aqeel could not appear in the court as he was not feeling well and was in the hospital, asserted his lawyer.

My family and friends have bought flats in Khudadad Heights in 2003 and 2004. We paid up fully and have waited for over 8 years now and have not been given ownership just like many thousands of other allotees/owners. We want our money back with compensation or the finished flats by end of 2011. People have been degraded by the management of Khudadad Heights over the years with their lies. One investor Mrs Zahida Durrani has taken her case to the Supreme Court to get her 20 MILLION RUPEES back from Anjum Aqeel Khan. Other investors in Khudadad Heights need to register their cases with Supreme Court to have any hope of getting their money back

How can the people of Golra vote for such a person at next election?
