Designer Maria B’s husband, Tahir Saeed, has been released from police custody, the couple confirmed in a video posted online.

He was arrested for making their servant escape after he tested positive for the coronavirus, the Lahore district administration said on Tuesday.

The servant was arrested from Khushab and was put into quarantine, a spokesperson for the Lahore police said. He told officials that the designer’s husband made him escape from their home in Lahore’s Defence area.

Saeed was arrested for endangering the lives of others, the spokesperson added.

Maria B, in an earlier video, made an appeal to Prime Minister Imran Khan in this regard. She said the police raided her house on Monday night “like I was the biggest drug mafia don in Lahore”.

The designer said her husband was informed that there was an FIR against him. She said she was extremely stressed as she was waiting for her family’s test results for Covid-19.

However, the designer and her husband explained in another video what had happened, saying that strange news had been making its way around the internet.

They said they wanted to clear some misconceptions Maria’s video had caused.

The designer’s husband said around 20 policemen had arrived at their doorstep, describing it as “abuse” and “harassment”.

“I cannot tell you how these people behaved yesterday…they used the butt of the gun to break my door open,” Saeed said.

“When I opened the door I was shocked to see three vehicles from two different police stations and 20-25 men had come to get me.”

According to Saeed, yesterday’s incident was pure panic. He said the prime minister had been telling people not to do so and thus avoiding a complete lockdown.

    After seeing Maria B’s video I commented immediately on a ladies group which I am part of. “Good what happened to him. He deserved it. They are putting other peoples life at dangerous and they call them selves literate. Without discipline this virus will not be contained. These people are so blind to their own faults and irresponsible behaviour that when some harsh action is taken against them, they end up producing videos. She should also be put in quarantine.”
    This is my exact reply to that ridiculous video she made. Did she really think by posting her video, that majority of the public would give her sympathy. Imbecile woman!

    Im not surprised at all. From all this it seems like MB didnt even think of the repercussions of her/her spouse actions. But in a country where the federal and provincial governments have absolutely zero consensus on lock down, social distances etc. why should we expect the citizens to be clear about each measure that should be adopted to contain this crisis. As people, we do not have the requisite access to the information that the government has. Agreed, MB’s household should have had more situational awareness, but forced entry, arrest etc. not the way to go. Is this some post apocalyptic George Orwell scenario? I think not. As a parting note I would let you consider whether why no one points a finger at religious congregations which are still going on as usual. So pointing a finger at MB and making it a national issue is just unbecoming. Point at you leader.

    Instead of speaking about brutality of policemen they first admit their own fault which endanger life of other innocent people. Really miserable attitude from such otherwise literate segment of society.
