First Woman in Pakistan to be Arrested over Cyber-Crime


Sadia Mirza of Pakistan is the first lady in the country to be detained within the purview of cyber-crime act. Her story gets a new twist and becomes unbelievable.


Sadia's arrest falls within the purview of PECA (Prevention of Electronics Crimes Act) 2015 because she allegedly sent lewd, abusive and threatening messages to a Manchester, UK resident Ahsan Rana together with threatening him with extortion bids. Subsequently, Ahsan's brother Hassan Rana filed one lawsuit against Mirza claiming she contacted Ahsan on Facebook the popular social networking site and asked him to give money that prompted FIA (Federal Investigation Authority) towards carrying out one raid followed with the arrest done on March 25 at Sialkot.


Registration of the suit was within the purview of Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act, 2016, clauses 20 (1) and 24(b)(c). At the end of hearing in court, Ms. Mirza was granted a bail provided she paid a Rs. 200,000 worth bond. Thenews.com posted this online dated March 29, 2017.


But, Sameera Mirza, sister of Sadia Mirza stated that Sadia in fact was victimized with the complainants' framed story, because they were taking out their grudges that were on her (Sameera) who was in UK and out of the jurisdiction so Ahsan and Hassan were unable to do anything. Sameera persistently described her sister as without fault and that the accusations against her were untrue. This Sameera told to The News in an exclusive talk.


The tale began when Sadia composed the love story of Ahsan from her Facebook A/C that resulted in certain blame game. Officials in Britain too asked Sameera and Sadia from staying off writing regarding each other as they were doing on Facebook, Sameera elaborated.


Meanwhile at the time The News got in touch with Ahsan in a telephonic conversation from London, Ahsan dismissed whatever allegations Sameera made. He tried to explain that Federal Investigation Authority acted solely after they got enough clues. Ahsan blamed both sisters saying they blackmailed him.


The matter is under FIA's investigation. When there's sufficient clue as well as proof that the Authority launches a First Information Report.
