A district and sessions court in Islamabad on Monday has extended the interim bail of accused Sameena Shah in the Sarah Inam murder case in which her son Shahnawaz Amir is the prime suspect, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Additional Sessions Judge Sheikh Sohail heard the case and extended Sameena Shah’s pre-arrest interim bail till Oct 7. 

The court adjourned the hearing of the case till Friday on the request of the father of slain Sarah Inam.

Advocate Rao Abdur Rahim appeared before the court on behalf of Sarah’ father Engineer Inamur Rahim. 

Whereas Sameena Shah appeared before the court along with her lawyer Arsal Amjad Hashmi. 

During hearing, Advocate Rao Abdur Rahim requested the court to grant the other party more time so that they could be able to bring whatever they wanted to bring to the court. He further pleaded that he also wanted to study some evidence himself. 

On his plea, the court adjourned the hearing of the case till Oct 7.

During its last hearing on Saturday, the sessions court extended accused Sameena’s bail till Oct 3 (today).  

In her petition, Sameena had beseeched the court to accept her pre-arrest bail plea as she was facing health issues. She said that her slain daughter-in-law’s uncle and aunt nominated her in Sarah’s murder case.

A local court in Islamabad on Sept 24 issued arrest warrants for the father and mother of Shahnawaz Amir who was accused of murdering his Canadian wife with dumbbell at his farmhouse in Shahzad Town after a row over a "family issue" on Friday. 

Police arrested his father journalist Ayaz Amir on Saturday and the court granted Ayaz’s physical remand. However, Ayaz was later released by the court in the case.
