PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz has said that “strict action” should be taken against former prime minister Imran Khan for “blackmailing” former NAB chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal through objectionable videos.

In response to PTI’s criticism over amendments to NAB law, the ruling party leader said those who were raising hue and cry over the changes in the accountability laws targeted their political opponents by blackmailing the former NAB chief.

“He [Imran Khan] tricked Tayyaba and kept her at Prime Minister House for weeks. Took videos of chairman NAB from her then blackmailed him through these videos to get verdicts of their choice,” she wrote on her official Twitter handle on Tuesday.

In May 2019, the audio and video clips relating to the alleged conduct of the then NAB chairman with regard to a woman identified as Tayyaba Khatun facing investigation by NAB authorities had taken politico-media by storm.

The anti-graft watchdog had rebutted the allegations.

Tayyaba had lodged a complaint with Pakistan Citizen Portal (PCP) alleging that the then “chairman NAB is harassing me [and] my family. He is making fake cases against me and my husband just because I didn’t make any relation wid [with] him. NAB is threatening me. I am a law student. How he disrespect a woman like this. He is a morally ill person. I have all vdos [videos] and audio recordings against him; I am attaching some screenshots of videos”.
