PML-N MPA Sania Ashiq Reaches Out o FIA Against Harassment And Defamation
PML-N’s MPA in Punjab Assembly Sania Ashiq has reached out to the Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA) National Response Centre for Cyber Crime (NR3C) for allegedly being subjected to a “campaign of harassment, defamation, and blackmail”.
The MPA took to Twitter to call the “online abuse” out, terming it a “targeted harassment strategy”.
According to Ashiq, she has been receiving threats on phone calls and has been linked with repulsive posts and remarks on social media.
Ashiq stated in the post that the series of harassment attempts have now reached the point where a “picture of her father” on his deathbed has been doctored, giving it an illicit context.
“A targeted harassment strategy starting with hundreds of threatening calls, 3rd grade songs on TikTok, repulsive posts on Facebook, random clips associated to me; has now culminated at using picture of my father literally during last hours of his life, moments I can never erase from memory,” read Ashiq’s Twitter post.
Saying that she has decided to report the accounts and individuals involved in the harassment, Ashiq attached a copy of her complaint lodged to the FIA NR3C.
According to the complaint’s text, Ashiq has been facing harassment since July 2021 by numerous accounts operating on social media under “original and fictitious names”.
