Pakistani film and television actor Babar Ali has left the country for the United States after receiving death threats.
According to news reports, Babar Ali had lodged an FIR over the said threats at the Defence Police Station, Lahore earlier this month. He stated in the FIR that he was suspicious that he was being followed and unidentified individuals had threatened him for his life via phone calls.
Reports say that the actor started fearing for his life after his TV drama was aired. He also reported that other artists had also received threats from the same people. It is not clear what the exact reason was behind these threats.
Babar Ali’s last post on his official Instagram account was shared five days ago and he has been missing in action since then. The actor was last seen in a television serial Laal Ishq that was aired on A Plus Entertainment last year.
