Published: October 20, 2017

PESHAWAR: The Peshawar High Court rejected on Friday the bail application of Taimur Ahmad, who is accused of creating a fake Facebook account of a girl and posting her photographs online without her permission.

Justice Roohul Amin Khan heard the case and rejected the bail application, ordering police officials to send the accused to jail.

The complainant accused Ahmad, a resident of Swat valley, of impersonation, arguing that the latter made a fake Facebook in the name of the girl, and uploaded her photographs on the internet.

The court was told that a session court had already rejected Ahmad’s bail, as his crime was of a “serious nature” in the digital age.

The case against the accused had been registered with the Federal Investigation Agency; he was arrested and produced before the court after an investigation.
