A special court on Wednesday rejected the bail plea of Nat Geo’s famed ‘Afghan Girl’ Sharbat Gula, who has been in the custody of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) since Oct 26.
Gula was arrested from her Peshawar residence by the FIA for alleged forgery of a Computerised National Identity Card (CNIC).
According to her lawyer, Sharbat Gula was on her way to Afghanistan when she arrested.
During a bail hearing on Tuesday, Sharbat Gula’s lawyer said told the court that his client is the sole bread winner of her family and is currently suffering from Hepatitis C.
Earlier in the week, Sharbat Gula was sent to prison on judicial remand by a local court.
The court observed in its order that when the suspect was asked whether she wanted to record her confession she replied in negative and refused to confess her guilt. The court then sent the suspect to Peshawar central prison on judicial remand for 14 days.
