Malik Riaz sent a legal notice to Uzma Khan’s lawyer Barrister Hassan Niazi for levelling false allegations on him.
According to Riaz’s lawyer Advocate Azhar Siddique, they are moving towards filing a defamation case against Barrister Niazi who dragged the business tycoon in Uzma Khan torture case.
“Muhammad Azhar Siddique, Advocate, SC, on behalf of Malik Riaz, has served a formal Legal Notice onto Hasan Niazi for deliberately & wrongly involving, maligning and defaming Malik Riaz into Uzma Khan Fiasco! demanding, inter alia, Rs.5 Billion as damages,” Advocate Siddique revealed on Twitter.

It must be noted here that a video got viral on social media in which Uzma and her sister Huma Khan were allegedly threatened and beaten by two unknown women who accused them of having a relationship with Usman Malik, reportedly the son of Riaz’s sister-in-law.
After the video made rounds on social media and people started talking about it, Uzma came up with a public statement in which she asked people to support her in the fight for justice against Amber Malik and Pashmina Malik, daughters of Malik Riaz, who allegedly accompanied Amna during the incident.
Uzma hired Niazi and Khadija Siddiqi to help her fight through a legal battle. Later on, Niazi alleged Riaz for offering money to her client to quit the case.
