Fears of life, supermodel Ayyan Ali shifted to special cell in Adiala jail

ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) – Security threats loom on the life of supermodel Ayyan Ali, who was arrested while attempting to smuggle $0.5 million to Dubai, as the jail authorities have moved her to a special cell in Adiala jail of Rawalpindi.

The supermodel has serious concerns of security, according to the sources, officials have arranged a high security zone for her in the special cell.

The sources are also of the view that supermodel was just serving as the courier of the money. “The money originally belonged to a powerful political family of the country”.

Earlier, Ayyan’s father Muhammad Hafeez and a panel of lawyers presented themselves in the court on the behalf of the suspect, when judge dismissed the bail plea of the model.

Hafeez asked the court to dismiss the case terming it a conspiracy against his daughter. Her life is in serious danger, he said.

Ayyan’s lawyers were of the view that it is not a smuggling case. Ayyan acquired the money by selling a property to Khalid Malik, brother of former interior minister Rehman Malik.

Prosecutor opposed the arguments and said that the case comes under smuggling as the suspect was caught red-handed on the airport.

Furthermore, the prosecutor adopted the stance that no progress has been made in the investigation as the model has undergone excuses of illness.
