Ayyan plans to produce movie on life in Adiala jail

Published: April 11, 2015



Supermodel Ayyan announced on Saturday she’ll give the world a glimpse of her prison time at Rawalpindi’s Adiala jail as she plans to produce a film on it.

“I’ll produce a film on jail life and the different characters there,” Ayyan said, referring to how she plans to document her time in the prison.

The supermodel was sent to Adiala jail after she was caught allegedly smuggling $500,000 to Dubai.

Ayyan has reportedly transformed the barrack she is being housed in, including the attitude of jail officials, and clearly she has gathered enough material to make a movie.

The supermodel chose not to don an abaaya and a veil during Saturday’s hearing unlike her previous one. A large number of lawyers, litigants and reporters appeared outside the court eagerly waiting for a glimpse of the supermodel.

Meanwhile, the court extended the supermodel’s judicial remand after the Customs’ investigation team failed to produce a charge sheet on Saturday.

When the hearing began at the court of Judge Mumtaz Hussain, a Customs investigation team member complained about non-cooperation by jail officials.

A team member, Yousaf Mughal, informed the court that notices were issued to witnesses of the defence but some of them were yet to appear before the team. Arguing that completion would take time, Mughal urged the court to give more time.

On this, the judge ordered the team to complete investigations and produce a challan before the court on the next hearing scheduled for April 24.

Defending her case, Ayyan informed the court she wanted to produce another witness before the court. The judge then ordered the investigation team to record the witness’ statement and produce it during the next hearing.

“Some witnesses are reluctant to appear before the joint investigation team,” a senior official of Pakistan Customs told The Express Tribune.

Further, the Customs official claimed the jail officials aren’t cooperating with them either. “They keep members of JIT waiting for hours whenever they visit the suspect for interrogation.”

“Documents provided by Ayyan have been verified by the property dealer and middleman but there is still a lot of work to do to confirm its legality,” he added.
