Bail of suspect rejected in Seaview 'suicide' case.

KARACHI -- A sessions court has dismissed post-arrest bail application of one of the suspects in the Seaview 'suicide' case.

The body of Sara Malik, a 23-year-old employee at the veterinary hospital in DHA, was found near Farhan Shaheed Park at the Seaview on Jan 8. However, further investigations in the case led to registration of a murder case under Section 302 (premeditated murder) of the Pakistan Penal Code.

Shan Saleem, owner of the hospital, and his business partner, Waqas, have been arrested on suspicion of their involvement in her murder. A third suspect, Bisma, has also been booked in the case.

The additional district and sessions judge (South) took up an application seeking grant of post-arrest bail to Waqas. However, the judge dismissed his bail plea after hearing arguments from both sides.

In the meanwhile, the judge also recalled interim pre-arrest bail granted earlier to Bisma in this case.

Lawyers said she was taken into custody from the court.
