A court in Islamabad granted bail to Former Federal Minister for Religious Affairs Hamid Saeed Kazmi in the Hajj scam case on Wednesday.
The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) presented Kazmi amid tight security to the senior civil judges’ court in Islamabad after a 14-day judicial remand.
Kazmi claimed his innocence and requested that he be released since none of the allegations had been proven.
Earlier, Kazmi had also presented a bail plea before the FIA's special court in Rawalpindi, which premised on the fact that no allegation had been proven so he should be released on bail.
The bail plea was accepted and a hearing will take place in the special court under FIA on Thursday.
