LAHORE: Actor Mohsin Abbas Haider, accused of domestic abuse against his wife, was found guilty by a lower court in Lahore of threatening his wife Fatema Sohail.
However, the actor was found innocent of breach of trust and demanding money from his wife after a police investigation.
The court, during Wednesday’s hearing, instructed both the defence and prosecution to present their respective final arguments during the next hearing.
“The incidents the accuser has narrated are false and nothing but the lies,” Haider’s counsel, Adnan Tariq, claimed in a video uploaded on the actor’s Facebiik account.
“The investigation was high profile and it was conducted by the SSP, ADIG monitored it themselves. No money trail was found.”
“There are minor provisions of threat in the FIR, hence we are withdrawing on our bail plea” the counsel added.
Haider added he was disappointed with the film and media fraternity for ‘believing a crying woman’.
“I hope people who have caused me so much stress to come out and say what they have to say now,” said Haider.
