SC approves Anwar Majeed’s bail plea on medical grounds

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan accepted Anwar Majeed’s bail plea on medical grounds Wednesday in the fictitious bank accounts case.

A two-member bench of the SC, under Justice Masheer Alam, heard the case today.

The apex court approved the Omni group head’s bail plea on medical grounds and issued directives for his name to be included in the Exit Control List.

The court, in its order, asked Majeed to hand over his passport to the registrar office.

On August 15, 2018, then chief justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar had rejected the Majeed and his son, Abdul Ghani Majeed’s pre-arrest bail. Following the proceedings, the Federal Investigation Agency had arrested Majeed outside the courtroom.
