Justice Shahid Hameed Dar of the Lahore High Court on Tuesday extended until February 20 the interim bail granted to former federal minister for overseas Pakistanis Ghulam Sarwar, facing charges of securing graduation degree on the basis of a fake intermediate certificate.
The judge also directed the counsels from the prosecution and the defence sides to come up with more arguments.
The anti-corruption establishment (ACE) had lodged a case against Ghulam Sarwar for obtaining a fake degree of FA.
It was alleged that Ghulam Sarwar, son of Muhammad Hayat Khan, obtained a duplicate diploma that was originally issued to another candidate of the same name but a different father’s name.
Ghulam Sarwar used the duplicate diploma for appearing in the graduation examination and obtained the BA degree.
