Lahore-based model and anchor Sophia Mirza who was found involved in a money laundering case has denied all allegations and said that the “propaganda” is being spread by her ex-husband.

According to media reports, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had found Sophia involved in kidnapping for ransom, money laundering and other fraudulent activities.

Taking to Twitter, Sophia shared a series of videos in which she refuted all the reports and blamed her ex-husband Umer Farooq, who now resides in Norway, for maligning her image.


“This is a conscious attempt by my husband to spread fake news about me so that the settlement of our children and assets can go in his favour,” Mirza said.

Mirza remarked that neither the NAB or the FIA approached her in regards to any investigation. She added that she has “legally taken action against all social media through cybercrime in FIA” for spreading fake news about her.

In a follow-up video, Mirza asked everyone to pray for her and her daughters and that she gets them back soon.

Mirza, who also hosts a show on one of Pakistan’s leading media outlet, was reportedly also involved in a fraud and kidnapping incident two years back.

Mirza is not the first model/actor to be implicated in such a case. Earlier in 2015, model Ayyan Ali was arrested from Islamabad’s Shaheed Benazir Bhutto International Airport for attempting to carry $506,800 to the UAE without the permission of the State Bank of Pakistan.
