The verdict was announced by Rawalpindi's judicial magistrate Yasir Chaudhry. In 2011, Atiqa Odho was detained by the Airport Security Force at the Benazir Bhutto International Airport in Islamabad for allegedly carrying two bottles of liquor in her luggage. The Chief Justice at that time, Mr. Iftikhar Chaudhry has taken a suo moto action and ordered the authorities to register an FIR against the actress. 

Atiqa Odho had always maintained that the case against her was completely fabricated and there were no grounds for her arrest as there was a clear lack of evidence of the incident.

Atiqa Odho added that the past nine years have been painful but this acquittal is worth the trouble if it helps citizens of Pakistan get swift justice.

"It's been a long and painful journey but if it helps the citizens of Pakistan get quicker justice after this, it's all worth it."

She did not hold back when talking about then Chief Justice of Pakistan, Mr. Iftikhar Chaudhry, who ordered the authorities to register an FIR against her and made her go through this terrible ordeal.

"As for the former CJP Iftikhar Chaudry, I feel so sorry for him. He lost a golden opportunity to serve our nation and instead played petty politics and ruined his own name and embarrassed our honorable judiciary."

She concluded:

"The people have spoken so I don't need to say more. Pakistan Zindabad!"
