According to details, shortly after her mother, former federal minister and PTI leader Shireen Mazari, was arrested in an old corruption case on Saturday, her daughter Imaan Zainab Mazari, posted a video on social media in which she blamed male police officers for not only arresting her mother, but also mistreating her and ripping her clothes.
However, after a CCTV footage was released on a different TV channel, it exposed Zainab Mazari’s lie, as it can be seen in the footage that female, not male, police personnel are arresting PTI leader and transporting her in a respectful manner, with no evidence of mistreatment.
Shireen was seen being dragged out of a car by female police officers in video footage of her arrest, protesting, “No. “Don’t come near me.” Mazari was overheard telling police officials that “there is no issue” and that the matter could be discussed “peacefully.”
According to a private media outlet, the former minister was arrested in 1972 in connection with the encroachment of a piece of land in District Rajanpur, which was filed in Dera Ghani (DG) Khan.
According to the case’s details, the Punjab Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACEP) opened the investigation after Assistant Commissioner Rajanpur filed a complaint. Mazari is accused of trespassing on private property.
On March 11, 2022, a complaint was filed against Shireen Mazari, and AC Rajanpur was assigned to investigate the situation. On April 8, the concerned official prepared a case report, and as a result, the Anti-Corruption Establishment filed a criminal case under its Rules 2014.
Imaan Zainab Mazari called her mother’s detention a “kidnapping” while speaking to journalists outside the Kohsar police station. She stood alongside PTI leaders Fawad Chaudhry and Shibli Faraz and said, “She was kidnapped — I won’t say she was arrested.”
“When someone is arrested, the police notify you of the charge,” she explained.
“I have no idea where she is right now.” “This government abducted her because they believe women are easy targets,” Imaan explained, adding, “I will not spare anyone if anything happens to my mother.”
