Malik Riaz’s Daughters Granted Pre-Arrest Bails In Uzma Khan Case
Two daughters and another relative of real estate giant Malik Riaz have been granted pre-arrest bail by a sessions court in the case pertaining to attack on actor Uzma Khan’s house.
The two daughters Amber and Pashmina Malik and Amina Usman who is the wife of Riaz’s sister-in-law’s son were summoned to the court and they appeared with their lawyer, Tahir Nasrullah Warraich, the president of Lahore High Court Bar Association.
The FIR against the three and their 15 private guards was registered after much persistence by the actress, Uzma Khan on May 27 in the Defence-C police station for attacking her and her sister Huma Khan inside their house.
The legal counsel representing Malik Riaz’s family have succeeded in getting them pre-arrest bails on the basis of his claim that the suspects are innocent and the police had unlawfully registered the FIR against them.
He asked the court to grant pre-arrest bails to the three women that Uzma Khan was attacked by.
Lawyer Khadija Siddiqi has disassociated herself from actor Uzma Khan’s legal battle against the daughters of real estate tycoon Malik Riaz after ‘strong’ reports of the out-of-court settlement emerged on Monday.
The lawyer took to Twitter to inform people about the recent development in the case. She said, “This is to announce that we are disassociating from the Uzma Khan case. I understand the reasons of any settlement by two aggrieved women in a rigged system, my conscience doesn’t allow me to be part of any of that, even in a professional capacity,” she said, adding that her struggle against the lawlessness in Pakistan would be continued.
