Mian Tariq Mehmood, the main suspect who made the purported video of judge Arshad Malik, on Monday (July 22) has been sent to jail on 14-day judicial remand. Tariq was presented before the court of Judicial Magistrate Shaista Kundi. The plea of physical remand of the suspect was turned down by the judge and was sent to jail on judicial remand of 14 days.
The controversial Mian Tariq, who sold out the alleged video of judge Arshad Malik, had been indulged in criminal activities in the past as the land cruiser gifted to him was recovered from Nishter Hospital parking. According to the record, at least 10 cases have been registered against him between 2015 to 2018.
Contradicting his father’s figures, Mehmood’s son Mian Faisal told FIA that the video was sold for Rs70 million and a jeep. The FIA has seized the V8 jeep that was handed over to Tariq as part of video scandal deal.
