A Pakistani court today issued arrest warrants against film actress Meera and her husband and directed police to produce them in the court on April 2 in connection with their alleged sex video.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Safdar Bhatti issued the order on a petition, which accused Meera and her husband Capt. Navid Shahzad of "committing a sin" by filming their sexual act.

The judge also snubbed the station house officer Mozang for not submitting a report over the issue.

"The couple also spread obscenity in society and challenged Islamic values," the petitioner alleged and prayed the court to give exemplary punishment to the couple for their "sinful" act.

Shahzad however, said there was no point making the video controversial, since they were a couple.

The alleged homemade video featuring Meera and her husband sparked a controversy in the country when it was released on the Internet a couple of months ago.

Although Meera claimed that it was a fake video, Shahzad insisted, since he and Meera were husband and wife there is no point in making the video controversial.

"We are a couple and those making hue and cry over (our sex) video should stop propagating against us," he said.
