Supreme Court refuses anchorperson’s apology over Zainab case claims


ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court refused to accept an apology from anchorperson Dr Shahid Masood over his claims in a news channel programme in the rape and murder case of little Zainab in Kasur.

Shahid Masood, in his talk show, had claimed that the suspected rapist and killer was a member of a pornography gang which also includes an influential politician.

Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar during hearing of the case told the anchorperson that it was too late now to apologize after a joint investigation team (JIT) probing his claims revealed that his allegations were baseless.

The court ordered Masood to file his reply in the case within two days.

The bench also issued a notice to the private news channel airing Shahid Masood’s talk show.

The hearing of the case was adjourned till March 12.
