ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court (SC) said on Saturday that pre-arrest bail is a special concession and cannot be given to every suspect.
The court said that the law was amended to allow pre-arrest bail for the protection of what is termed innocent. It can be granted to suspects only in special circumstances, the court ruled, without further elaborating special circumstances.
The court was hearing a petition for pre-arrest bail filed by Ghulam Farooq Channa who is accused of making a fake death certificate for a woman to take over her assets.
The court dismissed Channa’s petition for pre-arrest bail in the case.
