Model Ayyan Ali was indicted in the murder case of Customs Inspector Ejaz Chaudhry murder case by a local court on Thursday.

The proceeding of the case started after Ayyan arrived late in the court for hearing. The counsel for the model informed the court that his client’s flight was delayed due to which she could not reach for the case hearing on time.

Earlier, an investigation officer in Ejaz Chaudhry murder case requested the court to allow the investigation team record model’s statement before the magistrate in the court. However, the court turned down the demand.

Ayyan was arrested by Airport Security Force at the Benazir International Airport on March 14, 2015 after more than $500,000 were found stashed in her luggage.
