RAWALPINDI: A customs court in Rawalpindi reserved its judgment regarding supermodel Ayyan’s bail plea, after defense and prosecution completed their arguments on Wednesday.
Ayyan’s lawyers, Sardar Latif Khosa and Sardar Ishaq appeared before the customs court. The defense team argued that though the money was recovered from her possession, she didn’t intend to ‘smuggle’ it.
“She was waiting for her brother who was due from Karachi to collect the money from her,” they argued.
Further, Khosa argued that Ayyan was stopped by the Airport Security Force, when it was none of their business to do so.
He also objected over the clauses included in the charge sheet under which officials not concerned with her case arrested her and investigated the case.
