After the video went viral, people were quick to make apparently false assumptions that Bahria Town owner Malik Riaz was connected to the Uzma Khan incident
People took to their social media platforms to express how being related to Malik Riaz did not give the women the authority to barge in somebody’s house and abuse them.
Malik Riaz, the brains behind Bahria Town, denied having any relations or involvement with the incident but apparently that wasn’t enough to clarify to people
Malik Riaz took to his twitter to deny having any immediate family relations with Usman Malik and associated the whole ordeal as a malicious propaganda.
I would also like to inform that I'll be filing defamation cases against anyone who tries to implicate me wrongfully for such disgraceful incidents. (2/2)

The lady who threatened Uzma Khan in the leaked video also came forward with her own statement and also denied any connections between Usman and Malik Riaz
Amna Usman gave her perspective regarding why she took such a violent and threatening step towards Uzma Khan and also expressed that Usman, her husband, was not an immediate relative of Malik Riaz.
