PHC grants bail to three accused in corruption case

PESHAWAR: A Peshawar High Court bench on Wednesday granted interim bail to three people, including two officers of Child Protection and Welfare Commission, in a case about misuse of authority and corrupt practices.
Justice Qaisar Rasheed and Justice Roohul Amin Khan directed the three suspects, including chief child protection officer Dr Murad Ali Afridi, deputy chief child protection officer Ijaz Khan and owner of a rent-a-car agency Hashaam Khilji, to furnish two surety bonds valuing Rs5 million each for the bail.
They also ordered the clubbing of petitions against the arrest of the three with other petitions challenging the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Ehtesab Act 2014 for hearing next month.
The three were arrested on June 9 by the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Ehtesab Commission.
