Pakistani actress Uzma Khan addressed a press conference in Lahore yesterday following the leaked video on social media. She has registered an FIR against the daughters of Malik Riaz. But, some bizarre details related to the case emerged during the press conference of Uzma Khan.
Uzma Khan relationship with Usman Khan
In a press conference, Uzma Khan confirmed her relation with Usman Malik- the husband of Malik Riaz’s daughter, Amna Malik. The actress asserted that she was a friend of Usman for two years. However, conflicting reports are circulating on social media regarding the prospects of her marriage with Usman Malik.
A report quoted her saying that she was in a relationship with Usman and they were about to get married. But other reports quoted Uzma as saying that they were friends for two years. However, they were not on talking terms since December 2019 after she turned down his proposal to marry him.
“His family is also aware of it and I have evidence to prove that Usman was constantly contacting me after December 2019. He proposed to me and I denied. Amna or anyone else in her family has never contacted me before 23rd May (the day of the incident). Usman is still calling and texting me and I will give evidence in court,” Uzma shared.
Uzma Khan denied property of Usman Malik in press conference
Uzma Khan claimed the assertions of Amna Malik bogus. She said she had never seen Amna before the day she barged into her property and assaulted her. She also denied the claims of Amna Usman that the house was another house of her husband Usman Malik.
Uzma Khan addressed the press conference along with her legal counsel Mian Ashraf Ali and barrister Hassaan Niazi.
Mian Ashraf Ali has informed to register a complaint against Amna Usama under the Prevention of Cyber Crime Act. The lawyers of Uzma Khan asserted that the property belonged to Uzma Khan’s friend Babar Nasim. He is not at all related to Usman and his family.
He said he will soon provide the evidence of the rental agreement in the name of Babar Nasim to the Police.
“Forcefully trespassing inside a property is a non-bailable offense with a punishment of 7 years in prison. Threatening with violence and intent to harm with arms is another non-bailable offense with 10 years imprisonment. Amna has accepted in her video that she barged into the house as she claimed it is her husband’s house and you can see the violence and threats in the video as well. Both these crimes are punishable but so far no arrests have been made,” Mian Ashfaq said.

Uzma Khan demanded security in the press conference
Mian Ashfaq added that their clients have no personal dispute with business tycoon Malik Riaz. He went on to say that he is also a victim of the situation since his daughters-Amna Usama and Pashmina Malik.
Meanwhile, Uzma Khan demanded security for herself and sister Huma Khan. She says she is continuously receiving threats and believe that their lives are in danger. Hence she demanded Police to provide her immediate security, and her complete medical examination.
Adding that, “The Guards and the girls both beat me and my sister and we were seeking mercy.” She said the maximum thing they could do is to kill them. They can’t kill her parents because she is an orphan.
Uzma Khan also thanked the media for supporting her. “I’m grateful to the media who came for my support. All the allegations Usman’s wife is putting against me in the video are wrong. I saw Usman’s wife for the first time that night,” said Uzma Khan.

She refused to accept any offer from the family of Malik Riaz. She said, “If I would have to make a deal then why would I come here in front of the media and answer all these questions.” She only wants justice from the government of Pakistan.
“The Guards and the girls both beat me and my sister and we were seeking mercy,” said the actress.
What happened between Uzma Khan and Amna Usman
Several videos of women and armed men assaulting and harassing Uzma Khan went viral on social media. These videos prompted controversy on social media. The details of the case began to surface as Twitter users heavily weighed in on the controversy.
The jarring videos stirred criticism against the business tycoon Malik Riaz and his daughters on social media. Social media users disapproved of the physical assault of actress and model Uzma Khan. A detailed discourse started on social media on the controversy. Social media users discussed the entire fiasco and gave their views on who is at fault- Amna, or the Uzma Khan.
Amna Usman released her video on social media to address the controversy. Her video came hours later after the videos went viral on social media. She offered her explanation and shed the light on the events that led to the unfortunate fiasco between her and Uzma Khan.

At the beginning of the video, she said Usman Malik has nothing to do with Malik Riaz Hussain. Because he’s not a part of his immediate family. She called these campaigns to malign Malik Riaz. Amna accused that Hassan Khan Niazi has a personal spat with Malik Riaz Hussain. He wants to cash in the controversy against Malik Riaz.
She went on to add: “As far as on barging into someone’s home, this was not their house. This was my husband’s other house which I followed him to, so this was my husband’s home and I have every right to be there.” Also, she said she had repeatedly warned this girl to stay away from her husband while trying to save her 13-year-long marriage.
Meanwhile, on Twitter #ArrestAmberMalik is trending on Twitter.
