Supermodel Ayyan's Father Shot
RAWALPINDI: The father of supermodel Ayyan, who is currently detained in Adiala jail in a money-laundering case, was shot and injured by unknown motorcyclists near Gujar Khan area on the outskirts of Rawalpindi Saturday.
Ayyan's father Muhammad Hafeez alleged that the people involved in the money-laundering case against his daughter had him attacked.
Ayyan's father Muhammad Hafeez had departed from Gujar Khan on the outskirts of Rawalpindi to attend the hearing in his daughter's case when unknown assailants opened fire at him near Jinnah Hotel.
Police arrived at the scene and the injured man was shifted to Rawalpindi's Benazir Bhutto Hospital where he was reported to be out of danger.
Hafeez had earlier expressed his concern to media personnel about having personal enmities.
After his health condition stabilised, Hafeez claimed while talking to media that he was attacked by people involved in the money-laundering case against his daughter.
He reiterated that money recovered from Ayyan does not belong to her and that "she is being pressurised by certain people".
"The entire media knows who the money belongs to," he further said.
Ayyan, a former resident of Dubai, had blamed her father for the crisis as she claimed that she was ignored by him since she passed her matriculation examination. She later joined the entertainment industry as a model and ambassador for leading fashion and commercial brands.
She had also said that she does not want to see her father while in the jail because he had been absent when she needed his support. She also claimed that "someone jealous of her success" may have orchestrated the crisis.
Ayyan's parents split 10 years ago. According to media reports, Ayyan has remained out of touch with her father for the past 10 years.
