Earlier this week, renowned designer Maria B.’s husband Tahir Saeed was arrested. The arrest occurred around 12:30 am when over 20 police officers raided their house. Tahir Saeed was arrested on charges of knowingly allow a COVID19 positive employ to escape in a bus to his hometown. The employ, who happened to be, Maria’s cook, fell ill on the way and infected a number of people in return.
Maria B’s husband was released on bail within 24 hours of being arrested. The couple then took to social media to thank the PM and his authorities for timely help.
In a 10-minute long video Maria and her husband explained what went down and that they shouldn’t have been held accountable in the first place. The couple also thanked the prime minister for his intervention but received criticism from internet users for special treatment for the wealthy by the government.
However it seems, Imran Khan had no idea about the entire fiasco.
During a recent media interaction, when a journalist asked for Imran Khan’s comment regarding the situation, Prime Minister Imran Khan replied saying he had no idea about this case nor had anyone reached out to him about this matter.
The PM, however, added, “This is a new thing in Pakistan. People have no idea how to deal with corona because it’s not widespread in Pakistan yet. In Italy, people know about the precautions because they’re seeing their people die every day. Here there have been eight deaths in two weeks so people aren’t serious enough yet.”
“You’re right about the negligence though. It is our job. I will keep trying to inform people about all this,” he said.
