KARACHI: Videos have been circulating on social media which show actress Uzma Khan and her sister being harassed and assaulted by two women and their gunmen. In the videos, one can see clear damage being done to Uzma’s property, her belongings and her sister is severely injured. Uzma released her official statement on the matter on Thursday, naming her assailants to be the daughters of business tycoon Malik Riaz: Amber Malik and Pashmina Malik.
In the videos, Uzma is being accused of having an affair with a man named Usman Malik.
“I have been shamed, blackmailed, harassed, been threatened to kill in past 3 days,” she wrote.
Shortly after this statement, Amna Usman, claiming to be the wife of Usman, released a video. In the video, she first clarified that her husband Usman Malik has nothing to do with Malik Riaz, and that “he is not part of his immediate family”.
Amna also clarified that this isn’t the first time she approached Uzma, “in order to save her marriage.”
At this point, we have not been able to independently verify Amna’s connection with the two women who broke into Uzma’s home.
An FIR has now been launched under section 452 (house trespass after preparation of hurt), 427 (committing mischief and causing damage) and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation).
Malik Riaz has also distanced himself from the scandal.
Celebrities have taken to social media to share their thoughts on the matter and to offer their support to the injured parties.
