ISLAMABAD—The website parhlo.com has apologized to Samaa TV Producer Uneeza Fatima for publishing a visually misleading story.
The website ran the story captioned 'Cruel wife throws acid on husband.'
However, it was a curated item from reporting done for Samaa TV's evening show, 7 se 8, a few months ago. Uneeza Fatima was the program producer.
The Parhlo staff posting the item on Monday used a screenshot of the video, creating an impression as if Fatima was the wife who threw the acid. The image published with the story was of Fatima interviewing the victim.
A complaint was registered with the FIA Cybercrime Cell, who issued a notice to the erring website. Parhlo later apologized to Fatima and removed the post.
