LAHORE: A leaked video — purported to be of actor Fatima Sohail, ex-wife of Mohsin Abbas Haider — has been circulating social media and WhatsApp since Wednesday.
The FIA has also confirmed that Fatima is not the woman in that video, not that we shouldn’t have believed her in the first place.
However, after Sohail lodged a complaint with the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), the agency’s Cybercrime Wing conducted a digital forensic investigation and declared that the woman in the video was merely impersonating Sohail.
Sohail took to Instagram on Friday to rubbish the claims, terming the video inappropriate and fake. She added that that an investigation was underway and the culprits would be exposed soon.
An explicit video went viral last week which many claimed was of Fatima Sohail.
Sohail also shared a copy of FIA’s directive to Pakistan Telecommunications Authority to remove the video. Sohail said she was disgusted that people could stoop down to such a level just to malign someone.
