Hamesh Khan remand extended to 14 days.

LAHORE, June 24 -- A court has extended the remand of prime accused in the Bank of Punjab scandal case for another 14 days.

Mehmood A Sheikh, counsel for Hamesh Khan, talking to reporters said there is no truth in reports of Hamesh Khan becoming approver and he has not requested anyone to become an approver.

He said that nothing has been proven against Hamesh Khan in all the remands and we would challenge any further remands in the High Court and we are also filing a bail plea in the High Court.

Earlier Hamesh Khan was brought to the accountability court amid tight security in an armoured car.

The court recorded the statement of the defence counsel and extended the remand of Hamesh Khan to another 14 days till July 7.

Sheikh Afzal, another prime accused in the Bank of Punjab scandal, was also presented in the NAB court amid tight security. Sheikh Afzal was previously on judicial remand.
