Bail for China-cutting accused: SHC seeks comments from NAB


KARACHI: The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Monday sought comments from National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on the bail application of Faisal Masroor, an accused of China-cutting of land.

SHC bench headed by Justice Ahmed Ali M Sheikh heard the bail plea filed by Faisal’s wife, who requested the court to grant her spouse a bail as he has nothing to do with the China-cutting.

She submitted that Faisal was detained for the period of 90 days by the paramilitary force under section 11 EEEE Anti-Terrorism Act 1997. After his detention, he was nominated in the fake China-cutting case, she submitted.

The woman petitioner submitted that as her husband has nothing to do with land grabbing; therefore, he should be granted a bail.

After hearing the arguments SHC bench directed NAB to file comments in this regard.
