ISLAMABAD – The Islamabad High Court on Monday granted interim bail until November 12 to NewsOne TV analyst Dr. Shahid Masood in the Pakistan Television (PTV) corruption case.
Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kiyani heard the case.
The prominent analyst had challenged the decision of Special Judge Central Kamran Basharat who rejected his application for confirmation of his interim pre-arrest bail on October 25 and ordered his arrest.
The case relates to his alleged involvement in embezzlement as the head of PTV by entering into a contract with a fake company for earning media rights from the Pakistan Cricket Board. As a result of this, PTV reportedly suffered massive financial loss.
