KARACHI: Police have reportedly arrested Ibsham Zahid and his father for threatening and harassing a girl and her family.
On Sept 14, people had taken to social media to demand arrest of the young man who had reportedly been described by his own sister as ‘psycho’.
He has been arrested under section 506-B, which is a non-bailable offence.
One of Fatima Aamir Shaikh’s friends had said Ibsham had been harassing her friend and threatening that he would kill and rape her and her family. “Family of the victim has tried every legal way but our system has failed to give her justice,” she had written.
The picture of arrest of the culprit has gone viral on social media. Fatima Aamir Shaikh has thanked all the people who supported her in this cause, specially actor Feroze Khan “for the constant support he had shown since the start.”
Feroze Khan replied that as long as such beasts were on the run we could not sleep in peace anymore. He appreciated Fatima for having the guts to come out and fight her battle.
She shared screenshot of the picture of arrest of the culprit shared by Punjab Minister for Information Fayaz ul Hasan Chohan.
The victim paid tribute to her father for supporting her throughout the case for the last three years. “The one encouraged me throughout, always told me to fight and never give up, the fighter himself: Muhammad Aamir Shaikh,” she wrote.
