RAWALPINDI - A duty magistrate/civil judge on Wednesday refused to issue release orders (Robkar) for Ayyan Ali, a famous model who is languishing in Adiala Jail on the charges of currency smuggling case.

The judge remarked that LHC issued orders for trial court and not for duty judge.

With this development, the accused model would have to spend another night in the jail.

According to details, a three-member legal team (Khurram Latif Khosa Advocate, Shaista Advocate and Nasir Advocate) of Ayyan Ali submitted four surety bonds worth Rs 0.5 million each with the court of Sessions Judge Bahadur Khan at 05:00pm at his home and got signed the release orders after receiving orders of Lahore High Court. The session judge referred the matter to duty magistrate/civil judge Muhammad Naeem.

Sources disclosed that the bail orders were brought through a private aeroplane from Lahore to Rawalpindi while the surety bonds were submitted on behalf of four guarantors namely Muhammad Nawaz, Shaukat, Muhammad Imran and Tariq Ali.

Later, the legal team approached duty magistrate/civil judge Muhammad Naeem to obtain release orders for Ayyan. But the legal team was shocked when the judge refused to issue release orders for the model.

The duty magistrate/civil judge stated that all are equal before the law. He said that the LHC issued orders for trial court, which would issue release orders for Ayyan as per law. He said that he could not issue release orders while judge of trial court would perform this legal duty. He said that the orders of the LHC should be implemented in its true letter and spirit.

On the other hand, sources in jail revealed to The Nation that the women inmates kept visiting cell of Ayyan Ali for felicitating her over obtaining bail from apex court in money smuggling case.

Sources said that Ayyan was seemed anxious in wait for her release orders. They added that the model also packed up her luggage in boxes. A large number of media men and other fans of Ayyan also rushed to Adiala Jail to cover her on her release.
