LAHORE: The NAB will produce Editor-in-chief of Geo/Jang Group Mir Shakil ur Rahman before an accountability court today to seek his remand,in a case pertaining to the purchase of a 54-Kanal piece of land.
Rehman was arrested by the NAB on Thursday.
According to NAB, Shakil ur Rahman had appeared before NAB for the second time on Thursday to answer the bureau’s questions about the land in question. He was subsequently arrested after failing to satisfy officials with his answer.
