Lahore: LHC rejects bail plea in fake cheque case
LAHORE: Lahore High Court’s (LHC) Justice Manzoor Ahmad Malik, on Thursday, rejected a pre-arrest bail application of an Agriculture Department Deputy Director, Tahir Faizi, who was charged with providing fake cheque to a citizen.
After hearing statements of the prosecution and defence counsel, the court dismissed the bail petition and police arrested the accused. Faizi had been granted interim pre-arrest bail by the sessions court which had then moved the bail application to the LHC for confirmation.
A citizen, Naveed, had originally lodged a case against the applicant under section 489-F of PPC for providing a bogus cheque of Rs 1.4 million. The complainant got to know about the fake cheque when he presented it in a bank, which eventually led him to file a case against Faizi in court.
