PESHAWAR, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 5th Oct, 2020 ) :Chief Justice Peshawar High Court, Waqas Ahmed Seth on Monday heard a bail petition filed by accused , who is charged along with his brothers in attacking his sister in law and her mother with acid in her paternal house.

The complainant was represented by Advocate Saifullah Muhib Kakakhel and Zeenat Muhib Kakakhel.

The lawyers argued against the bail application saying that the accused attacked his sister in law Hina Bibi aged 20 with acid and burnt half her body and fled.

The lawyers of the accused put forward their plea that previously another co-accused namely Farman was also granted bail, thus maintaining the rule of consistency, Salman may also be granted bail.
