LAHORE: The main accused in the Olympic visa scandal, Abid Chaudhry, came out of hiding after his brother's death on Saturday.

Talking to media representatives, Chaudhry alleged the scandal had badly impacted the health of his elder brother Arif Chaudhry, who passed had away after a heart attack.

He said his family had been in constant agony since the start of the scandal.

“The tension even took my brother’s life,” he said, pleading the government and judiciary for justice.

Chaudhry’s name came to the fore when a British tabloid, The Sun, claimed to have unearthed a ‘UK visa scam’.

He had gone into hiding after a joint investigation team of FIA and NADRA launched a crackdown.

Earlier on Saturday, the Prime Minister's Advisor on Interior Rehman Malik had reportedly directed authorities to investigate the matter and present a report on it without arresting Chaudhry.
