LAHORE: Singer Rabi Pirzada requested the Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA) cyber-crime wing that her private pictures and videos be immediately removed from social media citing problems she and her family were facing, according to a petition she filed Tuesday.
However, the agency said removing her private pictures and videos, as well as the links to them, from the Internet was the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority’s (PTA) job.
In her petition to the FIA, Pirzada said she had returned her phone — which was carrying her private pictures and videos that later went viral — to the company. She appealed that her images and videos be removed from social media immediately and links to that media taken down.
The FIA, nonetheless, said that was not their job but the PTA’s, and, therefore, they had forwarded the singer’s petition to the telecommunication regulator.
