The Supreme Court Division Bench led by Justice Mushir Alam and comprising Justice Yahya Afridi and Justice Qazi Amin granted the bail to Jang and Geo Editor-in-Chief Mir Shakeel-ur-Rehman in exchange for a surety bond worth Rs.100 million.

Earlier, NAB Lahore had sent a questionnaire to Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman and asked to reply to all the ten questions which were related to the 54-kanal land. The NAB officials said Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman appeared before the NAB team on March 12 this year, but he failed to give satisfactory answers and subsequently, the anti-grant watchdog arrested the media mogul.
