ISLAMABAD: The Federal Board of Revenue on Saturday said a scrutiny was being carried out into the assets of model and actress Ayyan Ali who has been facing money laundering charges after being arrested from the Benazir International Airport.
Shahid Hussain Assad, a spokesman for the FBR, said authorities in Customs and Income Tax department were holding the inquiry into money laundering as well as her tax returns.
He said an individual is allowed to carry only 10,000 dollars abroad. It is to mention here that the model was taken into custody when she was about to board a Dubai-bound flight at the airport.
FBR Chairman Tariq Bajwa says no politician has been included in the investigation.
He said the FBR would not scandalize anybody in the Ayyan Ali case, but scope of the investigations has been widened.
The Custom authorities got a 14-day judicial remand and now the model is detained in the Adiala Jail Rawalpindi.
