The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday accepted the bail plea of former Punjab University vice chancellor Dr Mujahid Kamran who, along with four others, was arrested by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in a case pertaining to alleged corruption, illegal appointments and nepotism.
Dr Kamran, Prof Dr Raas Masood, Prof Dr Liaqat Ali, Prof Dr Aurangzaib Alamgir and Prof Dr Kamran Abid were all arrested by NAB on October 13.
According to the professor's plea for bail, the bureau had issued his arrest warrants before completing its investigation in the case.
While setting the professor's bail at Rs500,000, the judge accepted the plea.
"How dare NAB put teachers in handcuffs," the judge said, referring to an earlier hearing of the case where the professor was presented to court in handcuffs.
