The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) served a legal notice to its former party member, MNA Ayesha Gulalai, to prove her harassment allegations against party chief Imran Khan or apologise, otherwise she would be sued for Rs30 million.

Gulalai has been given 10 days to prove her accusations before the party files a defamation case against her.

The notice was issued on behalf of PTI Central Coordinator Javed Badar by Advocate Ahsan Javed.

It has been sent to Gulalai’s residence and parliament lodges.

‘Lewd text messages’ to Ayesha Gulalai: Check Imran’s Blackberry data, demands PML-N

Gulalai, an MNA from South Waziristan, had announced on Tuesday that she was leaving the PTI and claimed that women affiliated with the party faced constant harassment from within the party ranks.

“It is my integrity that matters to me the most,” the MNA told reporters. “I cannot compromise when it comes to my honour and dignity.”

She alleged that women working with the party received lewd text messages, and she could not put up with this any longer.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hanif Abbasi has demanded a probe into the PTI chief’s Blackberry data to confirm Gulalai’s harassment allegations against him.

“I salute Ayesha Gulalai for taking a stand and showing such courage to expose him [Imran Khan] and others in his party,” he told reporters.

Besides, a reference was filed with the election commission seeking Khan’s disqualification as a lawmaker citing the harassment allegations levelled by Gulalai.

    well let her prove that she has ‘that’ message. But let K-P CM also come clean with the accusation concerning nepotism? He is quite quiet on that.

    Let us not forget that in Pakistan unfortunately there is a lot of sexual harassment in the workplace and sadly the senior leadership will try to hush this up for their favorites. For a woman to come out and accuse someone also carries a social stigma of her being labelled. Thus the silence.

    See what happened at PTV. How the PMLN machinery worked to protect their appointee after the anchorwomen accused him for harassment.

    Laws exists but have not been tested…only on paper.

    Ayesha may be brave…or she may be a pawn. That only time will tell once she can prove the accusation and show the messages. ball is in her court. Recommend

    PTI says she is paid 500 million (50 crores) for this work. Gulalai can afford to pay 30 million out of this back to PTI and enjoy her life with rest of 470. Not a bad deal :)Recommend
