Judge’s wife gets bail in maid torture case


LAHORE MIRROR — The wife of Civil Judge Asim Hafeez who tortured maid Rizwana has been granted bail by a district and session court.

Additional Sessions Judge Mohammad Haroon accepted the bail after hearing prosecutor, investigation officer, defence while the family of the 10-year-old victim was also present in court.

During the hearing, the defence counsel presented some photos in court to reject the allegations of mistreatment, saying the judge’s wife Somia Asia and maid Rizwana could be seen in the photos as she was having a trip to northern areas with the family.

He pointed out that some old scars could also be seen on Rizwana’s face in the photos. The prosecution, however, opposed the bail plea.

Later, the judge approved the post-arrest bail for surety bonds worth Rs100,000.
