Warrants for Ayyan to remain suspended ISLAMABAD: Warrants for the arrest of fashion model Ayyan Ali issued by a Rawalpindi magistrate will remain suspended until Sept 21 but she will have to cooperate in a police investigation into the murder of a customs officer.
Extension of the suspension of the warrants, issued on July 20, was granted by a three-judge Supreme Court bench, headed by Justice Amir Hani Muslim, on Tuesday after hearing her petition filed through her counsel, Sardar Latif Khosa.
The warrants were obtained by the Station House Officer (SHO) of the Waris Khan police station, Manzar Abbasi, while investigating the murder of Customs Inspector Ejaz Mehmood in a case lodged by the widow, Saima Ejaz, accusing the model of being behind the killing. The apex court suspended the warrants on July 22.
The model was arrested on March 14, 2014 at Benazir Bhutto International Airport while trying to travel abroad with foreign currency worth $506,800 without permission of the State Bank of Pakistan and a lawful excuse.
The court decided to club together all her petitions.
