Former chief justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry’s son-in-law Murtaza Amjad, a key suspect in a private housing fraud case, has been arrested from Dubai, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said on Wednesday.

“The ex-CJP’s son-in-law has been arrested for questioning over a case involving a private housing scheme, Eden Housing,” Chauhdry said, while speaking to the media in Islamabad.

He said a big breakthrough had been made in the investigation of the Eden Housing case, adding that Murtaza was arrested by a team of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) from Dubai on warrants issued by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

The information minister maintained that Amjad’s father was the owner of the housing scheme, ‘which is why Iftikhar Chaudhry had heard the cases pertaining to the housing scheme himself and granted them relief’.

Chaudhry continued that 200 to 300 families were affected by the fraud, and ‘thousands of people invested their hard-earned money in it but were cheated’. He said, “The ex-CJP’s son, Arsalan Iftikhar, his daughter and his son-in-law’s father are also accused in the case.”

Vowing that all the accused would be arrested, the information minister said that Prime Minister Imran Khan had summoned a final report in the case within 24 hours.
