RAWALPINDI: A customs court here on Thursday indicted model Ayyan Ali in the currency smuggling case. She has pleaded not guilty.
The model was arrested on Mar 14, 2015, on charges of money laundering after being caught with over half a million dollars by customs officials at Islamabad’s Benazir Bhutto International Airport.
She was granted bail in July after spending around four months in Rawalpindi’s notorious Adiala Jail ─ and after her judicial remand was extended 16 times.
Ayyan, who maintains she is 21 years old, was reportedly booked to travel on a flight to Dubai when customs officials recovered US $506,000 from her luggage before she could board the plane.
