Mufti Qavi arrested in Qandeel's murder case

Renowned scholar Mufti Abdul Qavi escaped from the sessions court in Multan moments before his bail pertaining to Qandeel Baloch murder case was cancelled.

"My name is not in the FIR registered for Qandeel's murder, but I will present myself to the police whenever they call me for more information", he had said.

The investigating officer was also ordered to arrest Mufti Qavi and submit the challan of the Qandeel murder case in the court soon. Upon his lawyer's request, the court had adjourned the hearing of the case till October 18 (today).

Later, the judge rejected the application for extension in the cleric's pre-arrest bail.

Last week, a judicial magistrate, Pervaiz Khan, had also issued the non-bailable warrant for the arrest of Mufti Qavi after the investigation officer informed the court that the cleric was not cooperating with the police. He added that he respects the court and would accept whatever its "ruling" would be.

The counsel for Mufti Qavi had filed a pre-arrest bail application, soon after the non-bailable warrants were issued, and the judge granted bail against a surety bond of Rs100,000.
