SC suspends Ayyan Ali’s non-bailable arrest warrant

The Supreme Court on Friday suspended non-bailable arrest warrant against model Ayyan Ali.

Fashion model Ayyan Ali challenged non-bailable arrest warrant against her in the Supreme Court in the customs inspector murder case in a plea filed by her counsel  Farooq Naik.

Gulfam Butt, Magistrate of a court in Rawalpindi issued a non-bailable arrest warrant of the fashion model on Thursday after she did not appear for a hearing of the murder case.

Inspector Ijaz Chaudhry allegedly died in Benazir Bhutto Hospital after he was shot in the leg. A case developed when late customs official’s wife pleaded in a court that he was murdered to ‘protect’ Ali in a money laundering case.

Ali was arrested in March 2015 at an airport in Islamabad as she tried to smuggle $506,800 in cash to the United Arab Emirates.

The slain customs official was in charge to seize the cash and submit the money in the State Bank.

According to late inspector’s wife, her husband was killed for refusing to succumb to the pressure.

The fashion model has been a rough struggle with the federation and the customs court for over a year over her name being included in the Exit Control List on and off.

She was indicted in the case in November last year and the case is still under hearing but she was allowed to leave the country by the Supreme Court this year, however, she had to turn back from the airport as she was not permitted to board.
