“Our local media have been sensationalizing the news related to my arrest, that I have been found possessing alcohol,” Zaka exclaimed in the video.

He also elaborated that he wasn’t even using sheesha and clarified that the police took him into custody after informing him that possessing sheesha makes him liable to be arrested.

He also pledged media to stop spreading rumours related to his arrest and instead spread awareness that FIRs can be filed against you for owning a hookah.

According to the FIR, a case has been registered against him under sections 269 and 278 of the PPC, which relate to committing a negligent act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life and making an atmosphere noxious to health respectively.
