Ayyan's acquittal plea dismissed

Ayyan's acquittal plea dismissed

Staff Report

RAWALPINDI: The special court of customs, excise and taxation in Rawalpindi dismissed the acquittal plea of supermodel Ayan Ali on Friday.

Judge Rana Aftab Ahmed's court rejected the supermodel's plea after hearing the arguments from both sides and adjourned the next hearing of the currency smuggling case until November 12. She is expected to be indicted on the said hearing.

While presenting his argument customs prosecutor had opposed Ayan's acquittal plea and told the court that evidence clearly showed that Ayan was involved in the currency smuggling case.

Earlier during the day, the supermodel had appeared in the court and requested it to allow her to leave for Karachi. The court had said that she had already appeared before it and she could leave for Karachi is she had to.

Ayan Ali departed for Karachi following the court's remarks.

During the hearing former Punjab governor Sardar Latif Khan Khosa, had also claimed that the custom investigators had tampered with the evidence of the case and had demanded a forensic examination of the recovery record.

Earlier on November 4, the court had reserved its verdict on the application which was submitted by counsel for Ms Ali, on October 15.

Presenting his arguments Sardar Khosa had said that Ayyan Ali had been illegally detained for four months without any evidence against her. He added that no crime was proven against his client during her detention.

Khosa was of the view that Ayan could not be indicted without any evidence hence she should be acquitted under Section 265-K of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC).

Ayan Ali was arrested on money laundering charges earlier in March this year after being caught with over half a million dollars by customs officials at Islamabad's Benazir Bhutto International Airport.

The supermodel 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.
