Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said the country's Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) should arrange bail as soon as possible.

However, he added: "If we withdraw charges against her, deport her, or give her a temporary visa to leave Pakistan, then we will have to take back cases against the officials who issued her fake ID card. They are the real culprits, and I do not want to let them off the hook in any manner."
