Earlier last week a sexually explicit video surfaced on social media that allegedly targeted former TV anchor and ex-wife of Mohsin Abbas Haider, Fatima Sohail. The video, widely circulated on social media caused harm to Fatima’s reputation who recently went through a divorce with the DJ turned actor.
Fatima took to the Federal Investigation Authority (FIA) to report the video and requested them to help it take down from social media. As a result, FIA requested the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to remove the unlawful content online.
“This is some other lady,” said Fatima on her Instagram regarding FIA’s forensic results. “We are now investigating and soon will share who falsely circulated this video and purposely tried to deteriorate my reputation,” she further added.
As per Fatima’s request, the video has been taken down from all social media sites and the matter is under investigation.
“Ms. Fatima Sohail is a known TV anchor and media personality. On the 4th of Dec, 2019, a sexually explicit content (video) impersonating to be Ms. Fatima Sohail was found circulating on social media including Twitter, Youtube, and Whatsapp,” said FIA in a statement to PTA to whom the request was made under Section 37 of PECA-2016.
