Express Tribune: Arsalan Chaudhry, son of Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, on Wednesday said allegations that he had received Rs300 to Rs400 million and lavish foreign tours from Bahria Town were baseless, Express News reported.
A suo motu hearing on reports of financial corruption was heard by a three-member bench.
Upon reaching the court, Arsalan, while speaking to the media said that he was not not allowed to “go back home” until the court gave its verdict.
The Supreme Court, on Tuesday, had summoned Arsalan, Attorney General of Pakistan Irfan Qadir and Bahria Town Chairman Malik Riaz.
A personal staff officer informed the court that Riaz was in the UK, where he was undergoing treatment. The chief justice inquired whether Riaz had received the court’s summons, to which the officer replied that he had “not been able to get in touch with Malik Riaz” as yet.
