The Supreme Court on Wednesday maintained the Islamabad High Court (IHC) order and rejected the bail plea of Moazzam Ali Khan currently standing trial in Dr Imran Farooq’s murder case.
The division bench of the apex court comprising Justice Asif Saeed Khan Khosa and Justice Sardar Tariq Masood heard the bail plea filed by Moazzam Ali against the IHC’s order.
The bench observed that the co-accused was in contact with the alleged murderer through phone calls before and after Dr Farooq’s murder. It would not be appropriate for the court to interfere at this stage, the bench observed.
During the course of proceedings, Deputy Attorney General Sohail Mahmood informed the court that Moazzam Ali Khan had provided financial assistance to the murderers.
