RAWALPINDI: On Saturday, a special customs court issued non-bailable arrest warrants for model Ayyan Ali in a currency smuggling case.
As the model failed to appear for the trial once again, Customs Court Judge Arshad Hussain Bhutta presided over the hearing of the currency smuggling case and issued non-bailable arrest warrants for Ayan.
The accused model’s lawyer requested the court that she be exempted from the hearing as she was unwell.
However, Judge Bhutta said a new medical certificate had not be presented and demanded that the model be presented before the court. “We cannot grant such a long exemption on the basis of old medical certificates,” the judge maintained.
The hearing of the case was then adjourned till October 22.
