The Federal Investigation Agency’s Cyber Crime Wing on Wednesday arrested Mian Tariq Mahmood, a man allegedly involved in the video scandal surrounding accountability judge Arshad Malik.
Tariq, who was arrested from Islamabad, was presented before a civil judge, who approved his two-day physical remand. The suspect was shifted to FIA custody after the remand was approved.
Judge Malik — who had in December last year sentenced Nawaz to seven years in jail in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills corruption reference and acquitted him in the Flagship Investment case — has been at the centre of controversy since July 6, when PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz alleged that he had been “blackmailed” into giving the verdict against Nawaz Sharif.
