After spending five days in the custody of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), Hareem Shah’s husband, Bilal Shah, returned home.
Earlier, the social media sensation had claimed that her husband had been kidnapped by unknown men.
She had also accused Maryam Nawaz of being involved in her husband’s alleged abduction.
According to the details, Bila Shah was taken into custody by law enforcement personnel from Karachi’s Qayyumabad area. He had arrived in Pakistan 10 days ago.
Talking to a local media outlet, Hareem Shah’s husband shared details about his arrest.
He said that he was picked up for questioning regarding the social media activities of his wife.
“I am back. I was treated with respect by the members of an investigation agency. They asked me questions about the Twitter account running in the name of Hareem, and I told them that I had no idea what this was all about,” he said.
Bilal Shah added, “They checked my phone and everything and found that I had nothing to do with this account.”
He also told the media outlet that he will be taking his abduction complaint, filed by his family, back. “I believe in the law of Pakistan and have no time to fight these cases”.
The media outlet reported, citing security sources, that Bilal was unaware of the person behind his wife’s X account.
However, he told them that he believes that everything posted from the account is with Hareem’s consent.
It is pertinent to mention that the X account has been used to malign top political readership of the country for a long time.
Multiple alleged videos of politicians including Shehbaz Sharif, Hina Parvez and other were posted recently.
According to reports, Jamiat Ulema Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) leaders were among those who submitted complaints to the FIA about the account’s alleged defamatory content.
