Islamabad—The Islamabad High Court on Thursday turned down bail application of a woman and her daughter on the charges of tampering and uploading a female relative’s picture on social media’s site WhatsApp.
The woman and her daughter are in police custody and had filed the bail application after their arrest.
Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Cyber Crime Wing had registered a case against the duo after one of their female relatives complained they had uploaded her picture after tampering it with some nude photos on WhatsApp.
Justice Amer Farooq of the IHC took up their bail application for hearing here on Thursday. The FIA investigation officer submitted before the court that a case was registered on January 5, 2016 against the accused mother ‘M’ and daughter ‘S’ on the complaint of ‘N’ that they had used certain software to upload her face on a nude picture and then circulate it on social media through WhatsApp.
Later they submitted a bail application before the Additional District & Sessions Judge who turned down their request for bail on April 7, 2016.
Now they have filed an appeal against the Additional District Judge’s decision and are seeking bail.
The Islamabad High court too after listening arguments turned down their bail application.
