Asghar Ali Mubarak Advocate had told LHC judge that his client was implicated in the murder case but was innocent. He said the allegation on his client is baseless and an attempt by her in laws to blackmail and harass her and her family.

He stated that the confession of the accused before police investigators has no worth or legal basis in law of evidence. He prayed to the court to grant bail to his client. After hearing the comments of lawyer, LHC Rawalpindi Bench Justice Raja Shahid Mehmood Abbasi granted bail to accused. The judge also ordered her to furnish surety bonds worth of Rs 20,000 before the court.
