Aleem Khan’s bail plea adjourned till April 23


LAHORE: A Lahore High Court (LHC) division bench on Tuesday adjourned the hearing of a bail petition, filed by former senior provincial minister Abdul Aleem Khan in the offshore companies and assets case till April 23.

The bench comprising of Justice Malik Shahzad Ahmad Khan and Justice Mirza Viqas Rauf heard the petition. Barrister Syed Ali Zafar, on behalf of Abdul Aleem Khan, argued that all charges levelled against his client were baseless and the bureau did not have any evidence against him.

He contended that the case was fabricated and pleaded with the court to grant Abdul Aleem Khan benefit of bail.

However, the bench adjourned the hearing till April 23 with the direction to counsel for advancing further arguments on the next date of hearing.
