Court Extends Remand of Accused in Islamabad Couple Harrassment Case

ISLAMABAD: A district and session court in Islamabad on Saturday extended the remand of Usman Mirza and other accomplices in a case related to sexual harassment and torture of a couple.

The court extended the remand of four suspects including Usman Mirza, Idris Qayyum Butt, Farhan and Atta ur Rehman by three days and directed the police to present them before the court on July 20.

During the proceedings, the counsel of the suspect Farhan and Atta ur Rehman sought bail for their clients and said that they were neither given new clothes nor allowed to meet the family.

“These two have nothing to do with the case,” he said.

However, the counsel representing the couple said that suspects admitted their presence at the location and could be heard threatening to harass the girl. “The amount snatched and received from the couple has also been found from the residence of Idris,” he said.

The prime suspect Usman Mirza during the court hearing shared that a suspect named Rehan, who is now arrested, filmed the entire episode and denied that he received money from the couple.

“I am a property and automobile dealer and don’t need such petty money,” he said while denying the allegation.
