He also told the court that his client was held beyond the 72-hour legal detention period pending investigation.Police Prosecutor Warren Thornhill did not object to bail, but noted that if the court was inclined to grant bail, then specific conditions should be attached. The prosecution’s submission was upheld, and Khan was released on $50,000 bail. As a condition for bail he had to surrender his travel documents and report every Friday to the Brickdam Police Station until the case has been completed. The case will continue on November 28, 2018.Khan and his younger brother were arrested by Police after they were implicated in the beating of a differently abled man outside the nightclub on Sunday about 02:00h.Crime Chief Marlon Chapman had subsequently confirmed that the matter had been reported to the Police and an investigation had been launched into the incident.last_img read more
