FIA report further said,
“Owners of the number, including Maryam Ahmed, Muhammad Babar, and Salme BB, were asked by the agency to produce themselves before the inquiry proceedings to record their version. So far, only Maryam Ahmed faced up FIA and has declined the allegations to harass Hamiza to call any lady named Hamiza. Ahmed states that Hamiza gave her cell phone to him for technical analysis.”
Though Babar did not step into the court yet to record his statement. The cricketer in a recent virtual media interaction snubbed to comment on the defaming matter, saying that “his lawyer is handling the matter in the court”.
Hamiza in her petition further stated,
“SHO Cyber Crime Wing Lahore had a duty to register [a] criminal case against accused if from contents of application/complaint or information given to him an offense was made out”.
According to the media official!
“The investigating officer concerned had not performed his indorsed duty and had declined to take any legal action due to extraneous reasons”.
The judge in his order wrote,
“Since a regular inquiry is already underway, the respondent is ordered to proceed further concerning registration of FIR against the culprits within the stipulated time after [completion] of legal formalities”.
The petition was subsequently disposed of.
