KARACHI: Daniya Shah, a TikToker from the southern Punjab city of Lodhran, who rose to popularity as the third wife of the late TV show presenter Dr. Aamir Liaquat Hussain, continues to spend her days in detention as the legal battle over her bail plea drags on.
The Federal Investigation Agency‘s cybercrime division arrested Dr. Amir Liaquat’s wife on December 16 after taking her from her Lodhran house on suspicion of sharing offensive footage of Dr. Amir Liaquat online. The complaint is Dr. Amir’s daughter from his first marriage.
Daniya’s defense lawyer, Liaquat Ali Gabol Advocate, has been attempting to get her released on bond since December 17; however, the FIA attorney requested time for arguments on Tuesday.
After receiving a copy of the application, the lawyer for FIA informed the East District Sessions Judge that he would be putting up reasons to refute it. The hearing was postponed until December 29 by the court.
On December 23, the East District Judicial Magistrate denied Daniya’s request for release and placed her on judicial remand. Her defense requested a reconsideration of the bail plea in a sessions court after the judge rejected it.
