LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday has ordered to release Ayyan Ali on bail, right after four months of her detention over smuggling currency on March 14.
Although the previous petitions were rejected in LHC and Rawalpindi customs court, the fourth one was ended fruitful today.
The supermodel sought bail explaining the motives of her carrying such a huge amount of money at the time of boarding. She adopted the stance that she went to the airport to hand the money over to her brother who was arriving in the city via an Emirates flight.
However, the LHC registrar had considered that bail plea as not maintainable under the objection that a petition for bail had already been turned down by the LHC.
On the other hand, the counsel for Ayyan, Khurram Latif Khosa had explained saying the earlier rejected plea was against a customs court, while the new one directly addresses the LHC.
Taking her lawyer’s view into consideration, justice Abdul Sami of the LHC had declared that a separate bail petition before the LHC is maintainable.
The supermodel has been enduring allegations of money laundering and currency smuggling. However, beside facing these cases, she earned enormous popularity and fame after her every single entry to appear before the court for hearing. This has been one of the most discussed topic on social media since she got arrested.
