ISLAMABAD (APP): Islamabad High Court on Tuesday accepted bail plea of a head constable, arrested for showing negligence and facilitating Rashid Rauf, an accused one in conspiracy to blow up an aircraft in UK, to escape. Single Bench of Chief Justice Sardar Mohammad Asalm heard the bail application of head constable Mohammad Tufail. Sabah Moeenudin advocate, counsel for the pleader, apprised the court that the provisions in the case did not advocate his confinement. He argued that neither he had any relations with the absconder nor the situation bore witness to his involvement. He said the situation showed that alleged criminal escaped from the scene without any facilitation by the accompanying police personnel. After accepting his arguments, Chief Justice granted bail to Mohammed Tufail on a surety bond of Rs 100,000.
