Rawalpindi – Customs Court has extended the judicial remand of supermodel Ayyan Ali for 14 days today (Saturday).
According to details, Ayyan was presented before the special Judge Custom Mumtaz Hussain Chaudhry after the termination of her earlier judicial remand.
The court ordered to present the suspect again before the court on April 11.
Earlier, renowned supermodel Ayyan Ali was sent on a 14-day judicial remand to Adiala Jail by a local court for allegedly smuggling foreign currency worth millions of rupees overseas at Benazir International Airport in Islamabad.
According to sources, Ayyan was off to Dubai through a private airline when Airport Security Force (ASF) checked her luggage on the counter and recovered US $ 506,800.
ASF officials confiscated the money and handed her over to the custom authorities.
The model was shifted to Civil Hospital Rawalpindi for medical test and then presented in the court. A case was registered against her under the foreign exchange regulation and customs smuggling act.
The defense lawyer also submitted a bail plea in the court of custom and taxation judge but it was rejected later after which Ayyan submitted a bail plea in Lahore High Court (LHC) Rawalpindi bench.
LHC has sought a reply from the custom court in this regard and will conduct the hearing on March 30 in this regard.
The accused also filed an application for the attainment of Class-B in the jail for which custom court asked the jail authorities to submit a reply, however; the authorities in a written reply stated that as the supermodel is detained on judicial remand, she is not entitled to B-class facilities.
The supermodel is currently being kept in Adiala Jail Rawalpindi.
