ISLAMABAD – NewsOne Television analyst Dr Shahid Masood on Thursday left shortly before a special court of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) threw out his application for pre-arrest bail, and he could not be arrested.
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 suffered massive financial loss.
The Islamabad District Court in June issued non-bailable arrest warrants for Masood but he obtained an interim bail.
On Thursday, Special Judge Central Kamran Basharat Mufti rejected the analyst's application for confirmation of his interim pre-arrest bail.
The judge ordered his arrest and directed the authorities to present him before the court.
