The advocate for the applicant, Neelofar Baig told the court that Baig had attended the police station the day of the incident when police inquired with her after the man lodged the report. He also argued that when she was leaving the building premises, the customer had called her back on suspicion and checked her belongings, but had not found anything.

The prosecution while opposing the anticipatory bail told the court that she was not cooperating with the police when called for investigation.

Additional Sessions Judge RM Sadrani said in his order that considering the facts and circumstances of the case, directing the woman to be present before the police for investigation and also attend the police station every week, he is granting her pre-arrest bail.
