A man has been arrested in Lahore by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) for blackmailing famous TikTok star Jannat Mirza who has more than seven million followers.
The suspect, who has been identified as Asfandyar, is accused of doctoring and uploading online photographs of Jannat Mirza and her friend, Sehar Mirza. Jannat had brought proceedings against him at the FIA’s Cyber Crime Division. Two other men along with Asfandyar were also taken into custody in Lahore.
He confessed that he started harassing the sisters after being rejected by Sehar. As an act of revenge, he photoshopped her pictures and sent it directly to Sehar. However, Asfandyar claims that he never made them viral.
However, Jannat posted a screenshot of a news item about the FIA’s arrest. The TikToker said there would also be legal action against individuals who have posted obscene images and videos.
