ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court on Friday suspended non-bailable arrest warrant against fashion model Ayyan Ali and issued notices to interior secretary, SHO police station of Waris Khan and other concerned in customs Inspector murder case.

Chief Justice of Pakistan Anwar Zaheer Jamali, within roughly an hour of filing the plea, formed a two-member bench headed by Justice Ijaz Afzal to hear the case.

Farooq H Naik, counsel for the defense filed the plea in the Supreme Court earlier. During the hearing the supreme court adjourned the hearing till July 25.

Gulfam Butt, magistrate of a court in Rawalpindi had issued non-bailable arrest warrant of the fashion model on Thursday after she did not appear for a hearing of the murder case.

Inspector Ijaz Chaudhry allegedly died in Benazir Bhutto Hospital after he was shot in the leg. A case developed when late customs official’s wife pleaded in a court that he was murdered to ‘protect’ Ali in a money laundering case.

Ali was arrested in March 2015 at an airport in Islamabad as she tried to smuggle $506,800 in cash to United Arab Emirates.

The slain customs official was in-charge to seize the cash and submit the money in the State Bank.

According to late inspector’s wife, her husband was killed for refusing to succumb to the pressure.
