ISLAMABAD: A District and Sessions Court in Islamabad has issued a non-bailable arrest warrants for the victims in the Islamabad couple harassment case.

Additional Sessions Judge Ata Rabbani ordered SSP operation to produce the young man and woman after their counsel informed the court they were not in Islamabad.

The counsel requested the judge to fix the hearing at a later date as they were both out of town and it would take three hours to reach the court.

The judge said the victims' lawyer had made his request, but they would be summoned as per the judicial procedure.

The court then adjourned the hearing of the case till January 19.

At the last hearing on January 11, the female victim in the case had retracted her statement against the accused and informed the trial court that she did not wish to pursue the case.

The case surfaced when a video of four persons holding a couple at gunpoint, forcing them to strip and then beating them up had gone viral on social media last year in July.

Initially, the police submitted the case challan against Usman Mirza, who has been accused of sexually harassing, torturing, and filming a young couple in Islamabad at a hearing at an Islamabad sessions court, wherein the challan has revealed disturbing details on the nature of the harassment.

The suspects reportedly forced the couple to have sex, filmed it and then blackmailed them for money. The police seized weapons and mobile phones through which the videos were recorded.
