New developments reported in SC over bail of Colonel (R) Inamur Rahim

ISLAMABAD: New developments reported in Supreme Court over bail of Colonel (R) Inamur Rahim.

The Ministry of Defence on Wednesday agreed to release Advocate Col (retd) Inamur Rahim if he surrenders his passport and share his laptop’s password, *The News *reported Thursday.

The offer came as a three-member bench of the apex court, headed by Justice Mushir Alam, heard an appeal filed by the ministry against the order of the Lahore High Court declaring the detention of the retired military officer as illegal and unlawful.

During the course of the hearing, Attorney General Capt (retd) Anwar Mansoor Khan informed the court that Rahim was unwell and had been taken to the hospital multiple times during his detention.

“The AG submitted before the court that the government is ready to release the detainee on the condition if his counsel agrees to surrender his passport and share his laptop's password with the ministry,” the publication said.

Khan further stated that Col (retd) Inamul Rahim will also be required to avoid travelling outside the twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad besides ensuring cooperation in the ongoing investigation.

Rahim's counsel reminded the court that Rahim had been under detention for more than a month. He, however, agreed to the conditions put forth by the Ministry of Defence.
