According to the NAB prosecutor, the brothers had admitted to taking millions of rupees as commission from the bogus housing scheme. Arguing before the two-judge bench, the NAB prosecutor added, “Money earned through illegal means is still illegitimate even if it is mentioned in the tax returns.”

Within minutes of the twin arrests, Pakistani social media was abuzz with reactions.

Some cried FOUL…

…While others cracked jokes at the expense of Khawaja Saad Rafique.

Incidentally, since most of the PML-N leaders were taken into custody on Fridays, Tuesday-is-the-new-Friday quickly became the subject of many tweets.

While this is still a developing story, yet meme-makers were among the firsts to react!
