Aleem Khan was nominated in an FIR for using forged documents to sell government-owned land on Sunday. The FIR, which nominated seven other people, was registered after the Anti-Corruption Establishment’s submitted a report recommending action against the accused on Thursday. Authorities said that arrests are expected soon.

The ACE report said that precious state land was sold to the public using ‘fake, forged and bogus’ allotment letters. The letters prepared through connivance between government officials and office holders of Park View City/Vision Developers.

The FIR was registered against Aleem Khan as owner of Park View CIty/Vision Developers., His wife Kiran Aleem Khan, and daughter Aleem as office holders of the organisation. Shoaib Siddique and Atif Iftikhar were also nominated.

Javed Shahbaz, a sub-engineer in the Irrigation Department, Shafqat Niaz, a director in LDA, and haji Asghar, the patwari of Mouza Shahpur Kanjran, were also nominated in the case. These officials were accused of conniving with Aleem Khan to prepare the forged documents.

The ACE report said that all relevant documents including the forged letters had been taken into custody.

The report said that canal/escape channel lands in Mouza Bula Garhi and Mouza Kattar Band areas of Lahore were shown to be part of Park View City through forged documents, even though the land belonged to the government. The total area occupied illegally is over 100 Kanal.

Aleem Khan, a former close aide of Imran Khan who sided with the PML-N as PTI lost government, was also arrested in 2019 by NAB in an assets beyond means case.
