Maria B’s husband has been taken into custody for sending corona infected cook back to his village
Famous fashion designer Maria B’s husband, Tahir Saeed was arrested by the police on Monday night for sending their servant, who had tested positive for COVID-19, back to his village amidst coronavirus outbreak.
Taking to social media, Maria B posted a video message in which she has condemned the police raid and said that they treated them like criminals. She added that her family was already in stress after undergoing tests for coronavirus.
Maria B has also appealed to the Prime Minister of Pakistan to take notice of the police raid on Monday night.
“Last night my house was raided by police men as if I was the biggest drug mafia don in Lahore, with guns. They took away my husband and they told him that there’s an FIR registered against him and arrested him without a lawyer. They didn’t even wait for the lawyer to come, at 12:30 in the night. Nobody was up, we tried calling so many people but nobody was up.”

If the Maria B story is true, then all it proves is that the rich in Pakistan feel no responsibility for individuals, society or country. Only themselves.

Her husband Tahir Saeed is the owner of Female brand Maria B. He acted like an illiterate person by sending his cook Umer Farooq (tested positive for #Covid_19) to his village by bus instead of sending him to hospital. He must be punished.

Good step by Police. Maria B's husband is responsible for killing all those who got infected through their Cook who they sent home in Vehari by bus instead of taking him to hospital for treatment. Criminal Negligence.
