A local court on Thursday handed over former commissioner of Rawalpindi Capt (retd) Muhammad Mahmood and land acquisition collector Abbas Tabish, to the Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) Punjab on four-day physical remand for alleged involvement in Rawalpindi Ring Road scam.

An ACE investigation team produced the accused before Judicial Magistrate Yousaf Abdul Rehman at the district courts here.

The officials notify the court that the accused were also involved in Ring Road scam where they illegally changed the design of the project and added new interchanges that increased the length of the road from 22 to 68 kilometers. Due to this reason they pleaded with the court for granting the physical remand. The court handed over the accused to the ACE on four-day physical remand and directed for returning them on expiry of the remand term.
