SHO told to record petitioners’ version
LAHORE/DI KHAN: An additional district & sessions court on Saturday directed the SHO Islampura to record the version of petitioners on three appeals for a case against Geo management for airing objectionable content in its morning show ‘Utho Jago Pakistan’. The petitioners sought FIR against GEO’s chief executive Mir Shakilur Rehman, the show’s host Shaista Lodhi, actress Veena Malik, her husband Asad Bashir Khattak, producers, bureau chief and others. The lawyers for the petitioners — Sardar Hayat, Chaudhary Shaheen and Shaikh Saleem — submitted that Geo not only hurt the sentiments of Pakistanis but also the world’s Muslims. Meanwhile, a court in DI Khan accepted another petition against Geo’s owner Mir Shakil and 9 other people. The petition, filed by Tahir Ayub Hamdani through Zaighamullah Suri, requested the court to direct Civil Lines Police Station to register a case against the accused.
