ISLAMABAD: An anti-corruption court of Rawalpindi on Monday declared former Bahria town Chief Malik Riaz as a ‘proclaimed offender’ in the land-fraud case. The court issued orders to the authorities to present Riaz and other defendants of the case before the court by Sep 3, DawnNews reported.
Justice Chaudhry Amir Muhammad Khan was hearing the land fraud case of 1600 kanals.
The judge declared Riaz, his son Ali Riaz and other accomplices as proclaimed offenders and ordered the authorities to present them in the court on Sep 3.
The court also summoned the property details of all the defendants of the case within a week.
Earlier on Tuesday, Riaz made another failed attempt to stop an anti-corruption court from proceeding against him in a land fraud case by filing two identical petitions in the Lahore High Court (LHC). However, the court rejected his pleas.
