The Lahore High Court (LHC) has rejected a plea filed by model Ayyan Ali seeking the cancellation of her arrest warrants.

The model Ayyan Ali was indicted in a currency smuggling case.

Ayyan Ali said in the petition she wants to appear before the trial court to prove her innocence in the case.

She was declared a proclaimed offender by a special court last week after she failed to appear despite multiple summons by the judge.

She has not appeared before the court since 2016.

She was arrested at Benazir Bhutto International Airport in Islamabad on March 14, 2015 for allegedly attempting to smuggle $506,800 cash to a Gulf country.
