A division bench of Peshawar High Court on Monday accepted the bail application of JUI (F) Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman’s right-hand man former DFO Musa Khan Baloch after the NAB court failed to complete the trial within a stipulated timeframe.
The high court gave a dressing down to the accountability court for being unable to complete the trial on which the NAB court extended its apology. Reportedly, the close aide to Maulana Fazl, ex-DFO Musa Khan was arrested by the NAB Peshawar on 23 Sept, 2020 in assets beyond means case.
Mr Baloch spent at least 10 months in jail during the case hearing. More than 48 witnesses were brought forward in the court against him.— INP
