Ayyan Ali indicted in currency smuggling case
RAWALPINDI: The Customs Court in Rawalpindi on Thursday indicted supermodel Ayyan Ali in currency smuggling case, ARY News reported.
Ayyan, however, pleaded not guilty in the case.
The same court had rejected Ayyan’s plea for acquittal on November 6.
The supermodel was released from the jail after 122 days. She was arrested at Islamabad’s Benazir Bhutto International Airport on March 14 this year on charges of money laundering after being caught with over half a million dollars by customs officials.
She had filed two pleas seeking her bail, but both of them were rejected. The third application filed by Ms Ali was admitted and heard in the Lahore High Court.
Ayyan’s attorney Sardar Latif Khosa had said no bar had been put on Ayyan Ali on foreign travel.
The supermodel was sent to Adiala Jail, where she remained for more than four months before securing bail.
In April, police disclosed that Ayyan Ali’s life was in danger hence they have stepped up measures to beef up her security.
