LAHORE: A woman has filed a petition in a district and sessions court, seeking FIR against a person allegedly operating a Facebook ID in her name.
Shagufta Rani submitted in court on Monday that her husband not only kicked her out from his house but is thinking of separation as well after he found out about the ‘fake’ ID.
Rani said she is using the social media platform since long, and the accused, Raja Khalil, downloaded her photos from her original ID, and created another account with her name and display picture.
According to the petitioner, she found out about the fake ID after Khalil sent her brother a friend request. She claimed that the accused sent friend requests to many people to humiliate her.

She requested the court to direct the FIA director to register an FIR against the accused. The court has sought comments from the FIA by April 5.
