FAISLABAD: A Faisalabad court sentenced accused Majeed Zia to 17 months in prison for sexual harassment on Saturday.
In addition to the prison sentence, the judge at the additional sessions also imposed a fine of Rs. 1.5 million to the accused.
The FIA Cyber Crime Circle reported the incident, and under the Prevention of Internet Crime Act, 2016, the accused was prosecuted.
The FIA official alleged that in 2022, Majeed posted indecent images of a woman on social media.
A medical student who said she was abducted, tortured and filmed by an industrialist’s family asked a court to take action against two women for what she called “character assassination” and harassment on social media the previous day.
With her lawyer Rana Muhammad Sikandar Hayat Batti, Khadia Ghafoor submitted her application to the police, the court and the commissioner of Faisalabad.
She stated in her plea that before the court of Additional Sessions Judge Rana Saeed, she brought up the issues against the Women Police Station and the Cyber Crime Wing of the Police Station.
The suit also alleged that Sheikh Danish and the other accused were powerful figures in Faisalabad district.
The case was not solved, and Anna Ali Sheikh, the daughter of Sheikh Danish and Zara Shakur, threatened to kill Khadia on social media. The authorities are reviewing the situation.
A video of Hadiya being tortured by Sheikh Danish and his family went viral on social media in August last year.
Danish and five other suspects are accused of kidnapping and torturing Khadija. As the video went viral on social media, the six criminals were arrested by the police.
