Rawalpindi: Bail granted
RAWALPINDI: A man arrested on the charges of stealing valuables from his cousin’s house was granted bail by a court in Rawalpindi on Monday. Additional sessions judge Ashraf Bhatti granted the bail to Babar Rehman on the surety bonds of Rs50,000. Mr Rehman was accused of stealing Rs50,000 and some jewellery from the house of his cousin Shahzeb Bokhari on February 6. However, the matter was reported to the police after 49 days.
The complainant said he himself had investigated the matter and was sure that Mr Rehman and a woman, Saima, had stolen the cash and jewellery from his house. The counsel for the accused, Barrister Afzal Hussain pleaded that the bail application could only be rejected if the court was fully convinced that he had been guilty of an offence. He said there was no plausible explanation for the delay in registration of the FIR and nothing incriminating was recovered from the accused by the police during the remand period.
