RAWALPINDI: Model Ayyan Ali has been indicted of currency smuggling by the custom courts, Aaj News reported.
The model has appeared 16 times in court before, but this is the first time she is officially being accused on smuggling half a million dollars abroad.
Earlier, Ayyan’s counsel, Sardar Latif Khosa had filed a plea stating that her client was sick and could not appear before the court.
He had also plead that court should return his client’s passport.
The court rejected Khosa’s plea today.
In March Ayyan was stopped at the Benazir International Airport with half a million dollars, boarding a flight to Dubai.
She spent several months in jail then, but was later released on bail.
