ISLAMABAD: PML-N lawmaker and columnist from Chakwal, Ayaz Amir and six others were booked on Friday on the orders of a sessions court for allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl.
However, police were asked to thoroughly investigate the allegations before taking any action. In her application, Tabassum Farooq, a resident of Langah village, alleged that she was taken to the residence of Ayaz Amir on May 22 by her sister-in-law where an intoxicated Amir forcibly raped her.
Ayaz Amir denied that he had met the girl. “I was in Lahore on May 22. My phone record, my stay at Avari hotel in Lahore and my meeting with the Punjab chief minister on May 21 prove my innocence,” said Amir.
