KARACHI: A sessions court on Friday dismissed an application seeking registration of a case against Dania Malik, the estranged wife of late Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) MNA Dr Aamir Liaquat, for allegedly sharing their private videos on social media.
Additional Sessions Judge (South) Aslam Hussain Khowaja pronounced his order reserved on an application filed by one Shabbir Shafqat under Section 22-A of the criminal procedure code (CrPC), seeking issuance of directives for the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to take action against Ms Malik under the cyber crime laws.
The judge noted: “On the perusal of record, it appears that during lifetime of deceased Aamir Liaquat Hussain, his wife Dania Malik made the photos/videos viral which were morally objectionable.”
However, he opined that since the late MNA’s daughter had already lodged a complaint with the FIA’s cyber crime wing and a four-member team was conducting an inquiry, the instant application on the same issue was not maintainable.
In the plea, applicant’s counsel Aamir Jamil Virk had argued that Ms Malik had shared indecent videos of her spouse on social media, which defiled the sacred relationship of husband and wife.
