Lahore High Court Denies Bail to Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court on Wednesday dismissed the bail application filed by Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman, in a case relating to a property transaction that took place 34 years ago.

A two-member bench of the High Court, comprising Justice Sardar Ahmed Naeem and Justice Farooq Haider, took the decision after hearing the concluding arguments today.

In today’s hearing, MSR’s advocate Amjad Pervez had completed his arguments for the allowance of bail, highlighting that, despite the flimsy and concocted nature of the case, MSR had continued cooperating with the investigation and presents no risk due to which bail can be denied.

The NAB prosecutor, too, presented his arguments, after which the court recessed for 10 minutes before the judgement to deny bail was announced.
