Lahore: Court dismisses Kalia’s plea, Rustam sent on judicial remand
LAHORE: The Lahore district and sessions judge on Monday dismissed the applications of Khanani and Kalia directors Javed Khanani and Munaf Kalia challenging the jurisdiction of a judicial magistrate to hear their case. Meanwhile, Judicial Magistrate Faisal Jamil sent Rustam Ali, another accused in the foreign currency scam, on judicial remand. The magistrate remanded three accused – Khanani, Kalia and Duniya Enterprises Gujranwala employee Tariq Mehmood – to FIA’s custody for three more days. Khanani, Kalia and Ali had filed applications arguing the judicial magistrate had no authority to hear the case or remand the accused. The sessions judge will hear arguments in the bail applications of the accused on November 20.
