Govt, Customs issued notices over Ayyan Ali's bail plea
The counsel of money laundering model Sardar Latif Khosa took the stance before the court that Customs officials had arrested Ayyan Ali from Rawalpindi airport and the place from where she was taken into custody does not confirms her to be a passenger, nor did she acquire her boarding card to fly to Dubai.
He argued that the Customs Act allows granting bail provided when a woman is accused in some case and she is not required to be further interrogated.
Khosa hence moved the court to accept the bail plea.
At this, the LHC issued notices to the federal government and Pakistan Customs seeking their reply in one week and adjourned the hearing.
The model was all set to board a Dubai-bound flight from Benazir International Airport on March 14 that a huge amount of foreign currency (more than 5 lac USD) was recovered from secret chambers of her bag, during checking at the counter of Airport Security Force (ASF).
