Abduction case: Actress, sister granted bail till Oct 25

LAHORE: Additional District and Sessions Judge Abdul Qayyum has granted pre-arrest bail to actress Khushbukht alias Sofia Mirza and her sister Maryum Mirza, who are accused of abduction. The sisters submitted that the charges against them were fabricated and they had nothing to do with the abduction of a female college student.

The court granted them bail at Rs50,000 each until October 25. The abduction case was registered on the complaint of Rukhsana Zahid, the mother of the victim, Fatima. She told the police that her daughter had gone to college on October 12 and not been seen since.

She said she had obtained a record of calls made by Fatima from her mobile phone company and it turned out that she had been in contact with Sofia and Maryum Mirza. She said she had asked the sisters about her daughter, but they had refused to tell her anything. She said Sofia Mirza had later called her and threatened her.
