NOWSHERA:


A sexual harassment case was filed against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Provincial Finance Secretary Ishfaq Paracha for allegedly assaulting a woman in his office on June 29.

Maryam, a student of FA and resident of Nowshera Cantonment, filed a case with the police stating on June 29 Ishfaq Paracha the owner of the enterprise she worked at, Dilta Pharma Factory, allegedly asked her to come to his office where he offered her a good post and higher pay for sexual services.
