Kohistan jirga controversy: Two brothers booked for filming women

Both men have already fled the area, sources in the police told The Express Tribune.

KOHISTAN: Police have registered an FIR against two brothers for allegedly making a film of four women singing and dancing with men at a wedding party in the conservative region and then putting it up on the internet.

However, both men have already fled the area, sources in the police told The Express Tribune on Saturday.

According to the FIR, the two brothers, Bin Yasir and Gul Nazar, filmed the four women and then added their own footage to the video, in which they themselves were dancing.

The accused, in connivance with four other people including their elder brother and a cousin uploaded the video on the internet and also released it to some media outlets.

The video caused uproar in the community, which felt the video had stained the honour of the tribe’s women. The FIR adds that all of the accused conspired to damage peace in Kohistan by pitting two tribes against each other.

Earlier, a tribal Jirga had reportedly condemned the four women and two men to death when the video was made public.
