A local court in Faisalabad on Thursday granted pre-arrest bail to Ana Ali Sheikh, daughter of main accused Sheikh Danish Ali in Khadija Mehmood torture case, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The court accepted Ana Sheikh’s bail until September 3. 

Ana Sheikh was herself present in the court as Additional District and Sessions Judge Haider Ali heard her application and announced his verdict.

A few days ago, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) granted a four-day protective bail, for a surety bond of Rs25,000, to Ana Ali Sheikh in the abduction, torture and abuse case of medical student Khadija.

Last week, influential businessman Sheikh Danish Ali along with five other men allegedly abducted, tortured and sexually assaulted Khadija in Faisalabad.

The police took action against six suspects after footage of the victim being attacked and humiliated spread like wildfire on social media. In the harrowing visuals, Sheikh Danish Ali, who runs a lucrative textile business in Punjab city, along with Maham, a classmate of the victim, can be seen not only mercilessly thrashing Khadija but also hurling verbal abuse at her at their residence in the upscale Paradise Valley.

On August 9, Danish and his daughter, along with a group of men, broke into Khadija’s home and kidnapped her as well as her brother after the student rejected Danish’s advances.

According to the FIR, they also stole valuables including Khadija’s iPhone 13 Pro Max, gold bangles and Rs500,000.
