ISLAMABAD: A few hours after the Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) filed a defamation suit against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, PTI announced it will file a suit against MQM, Express News reported on Tuesday.

The PTI spokesperson said that the party will file a Rs10 billion defamation suit against MQM.

However, the final decision will be taken once Imran comes back to Pakistan from London.

MQM leaders Farooq Sattar and Senator Farogh Naseem personally filed the suit today in the Sindh High Court for MQM Chief Altaf Hussain’s alleged character assassination in the wake of PTI leader Zahra Shahid Hussain’s murder.

Imran had held Hussain responsible for Zahra’s murder and accused him of inciting violence through his public broadcasts.
