Islamabad, Feb 27 (IANS) A Pakistani court on Saturday admitted the bail plea of Indian cricketer Virat Kohli’s fan Umer Daraz who was behind bars for over a month.
Daraz was arrested on January 25 for hoisting an Indian tri-colour on the rooftop of his house in Punjab province. On February 18, local magistrate Aneeq Anwer rejected his bail plea, Dawn reported.
Later, advocates Rizwan and Muhammad Yousaf applied for his bail with the court of Additional District and Sessions Judge Asadullah Siraj.
On Friday, after examining police and judicial case files and hearing arguments of both sides, the court admitted Daraz’s bail plea and ordered him to furnish a surety bond of Rs50,000 (nearly $450).
