Ali Javed on behalf of The Campaign for Khurshid Anwar lodged a formal complaint on Tuesday denying the charges leveled against Anwar.
In the complaint, he highlights the fact that there is enough material evidence in the form of testimonies, audio recordings, personal letters and updates on social media sites etc. to suspect a well-spun conspiracy behind the constant harassment of Khurshid over the course of last few months.
The complaint requests the police to lodge an FIR for offences under sections of false charges of offence (211), defamation (500), abetment to suicide (306) and punishment for sending offensive messages through communication (66 IT Act).
Madhu Kishwar, one of the accused in the complaint, has vehemently denied any role in passing the CD or advertising against Anwar in any way. However, on the crucial questions of,
1. Why she chose to video record the testimony of a girl, who didn’t wish the allegation to be made public, without any attempt to hide her face?
2. Why did she hand over a copy of the CD with such sensitive material to a supposed friend of the girl she didn’t even know?
she has maintained a deathly silence.
