LAHORE: A court has granted bail to a renowned singer and his female fan, who allegedly assisted the celebrity in stealing over Rs15 million in cash and valuables from her own family.
The girl’s mother Rukhsana Bibi registered an FIR against three suspects once she found out her valuables were missing. Around Rs4 million in cash, £400, 2,000 UAE dirhams, 16 wrist watches, expensive gold jewellery and four mobile phones were reportedly stolen. The singer was alleged to have connived with Nosheen, who cooperated with the suspects for the theft.
Rukhsana then registered another FIR with the Raiwind police against six suspects, including her daugher along with five other suspects. The accused persons filed bail petitions in the district and sessions court, which granted bail to them and fixed the next dates for appearance in court.
The main accused singer in his two bail petitions submitted that he was framed to be humiliated and blackmailed, and he had nothing to do with the theft. In order to save himself from the humiliation of arrest, he has filed for a pre-arrest bail, he stated.
