The court also ordered the officials of the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA) Cyber Crime Wing and others to appear before the court on Tuesday. PPP senior leader and Senator Rehman Malik has vehemently denied the rape allegations against him by US blogger in Pakistan, Cythnia Ritchie, calling them ‘baseless, shameful, and inappropriate’.
