But at the same time, when some people came to Ayesha to take selfies and pictures, the incident escalated.
But some people on social media after watching Ayesha Baig’s video also say that maybe it was pre-planned by this girl and this is an easy way to gain fame. But what is false and what is true now Pakistan’s law enforcement agencies will soon solve this problem.
