LAHORE: The Lahore High Court granted pre-arrest bail on Wednesday to actor Salomi Rana in a fraud case.

The female artiste appeared before the court along with her counsel and argued she was implicated in a fabricated case.

Her lawyer said Islampura police had registered the FIR on the complaint of a woman, who accused his client of fraudulently selling a property.

He contended the case was lodged after a delay of 10 months after the actual property deal that was enough to prove the charges were baseless. Justice Alia Neelum accepted the plea and granted pre-arrest bail to Salomi, subject to furnishing of the surety bond.

On Wednesday, stage actress Kismat Baig was shot by unidentified armed men in Lahore. The actress was travelling with her guard when unidentified motorcyclists opened fire at her car at Harbanspura, near Palki wedding hall.

According to initial reports, Baig received four bullets while her guard received one. She is currently admitted in Services Hospital, Lahore and is said to be in critical condition. Police officials have began investigations into the incident.

Earlier, another stage actor, Hassan Khan, was tortured by suspects in Gulberg. A case was registered against unidentified suspects following his brother’s complaint.

In September, a television host of local news channel Abb Takk was allegedly poisoned by a ‘fan’. The host of Khufia programme, Sana Faisal, was allegedly approached by a ‘fan’ in Karachi who asked her for a selfie and an autograph. The fan also reportedly gave Faisal ice cream. Faisal ate the ice cream and was hospitalised and was believed to have been poisoned by the fan.
