Police to book accused photographer under PSA
Islamabad, June 10: Authorities have decided to book the proprietor of Monaliza studio, Manzoor Ahmed Keeloo, under Public Safety Act for his alleged involvement in the sex racket which was unearthed in this south Kashmir town recently, officials told Greater Kashmir on Thursday.
They said the warrant in this connection would be executed on Friday.
“The photo clips showing the accused in an objectionable position with some girls are enough to detain him under the PSA. He has been indulging in a porn photographic session with some girls and then preparing CDs from past several years. It has been established by the material seized from his the personal computers and other electronic equipments from his lab,” the dossier reads.
“The involvement of the accused in the anti-social activities has been confirmed and there are sufficient evidences to prove it. As he is a threat to public order, so it is necessary to detain him under the PSA,” it reads.
“His acquittal may prove detrimental and create law and order problem in the town,” the dossier adds.
The Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Islamabad, Dr Showkat Ahmed Malik while confirming the detention of the accused under PSA said, “The police today produced the dossier before the district magistrate who later issued a warrant against him that is likely to be executed on Friday.”
He said that the accused would be sent to the Kotbalwal Jail immediately. Regarding the involvement of other persons he said, “Several people have been picked up for questioning while the girls involved in porno clip are also in a police remand. Involvement of a few other persons in this racket cannot be ruled out, which police are investigating.”
Pertinently, the sex racket expose had triggered violent protests and clashes in Islamabad which observed shutdown for six consecutive days.
However, the shutdown call was withdrawn by the Islamabad Welfare Committee after the administration and Police assured them that accused would be dealt with sternly.
