LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Thursday dismissed bail petitions of two accused, partners of a hospital and industrial waste disposal firm, involved in the violation of licence terms and corruption.

The division bench comprising Justice Sardar Ahmad Naeem and Justice Farooq Haider heard the post-arrest bail petitions filed by Raja Muhammad Asghar and Hassan Zaid, partners of Ali Traders Waste Management Company.

In its five-page detailed verdict, the bench held that the accused failed to prove their innocence, hence, they did not deserve the relief of bail. Advocate Asad Mansoor Butt, on behalf of the petitioners, argued before the bench that the NAB arrested his clients on charges of violating their licence terms for disposal of the hospital in December 2019.
