ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – The Supreme Court has rejected journalist Shahid Masood’s claims about the culprit in Zainab murder case, Imran being part of a pornography ring operating within Pakistan with multiple bank accounts.
Hearing case regarding startling revelations made by Shahid Masood, 3-member bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar said that the time to apologize and retract claims has passed, although Dr. Shahid Masood should file written confession and apology for spreading misinformation for the court to reach a final decision.
When Shahid Masood asked to apologize and withdraw case, CJP said that this matter would not end with an apology as the applicant made the claims on national TV and asked the court to take notice, prescribing for himself the punishment of death if claims proven false.
Talking to Dr. Shahid Masood, CJP said that people present in the last hearing had advised him to apologize and take claims back. He said that the JIT report proved him false and now it was up to the court to determine the legal consequences of his actions.
The anchorperson had claimed during a late night show that Zainab s suspected rapist and murderer was a member of a pornography gang, which also includes a Punjab minister. During another hearing of the case, Masood had also told the court that the suspect has 37 foreign accounts.
The court ordered a copy of the JIT report to be provided to Dr. Shahid Masood and adjourned hearing till March 12.
