PTI serves legal notice to Gharida Farooqi
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has served legal notice to Aaj News anchorperson Gharida Farooqi seeking an unconditional apology over the allegations she levelled against PTI and its Chairman Imran Khan regarding the nomination of the Caretaker Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

The PTI senior leader Dr Babar Awan sent a legal notice to anchorperson Gharida Farooqi at the behest of Central Media Department (CMD) Head Iftikhar Durrani, seeking unconditional apology over her unwarranted tweets in which she levelled serious allegations against PTI and its leadership.

The notice demanded Gharida Farooqi to immediately remove the malicious tweets and tender an apology within seven days or pay Rs 1 billion as damages; otherwise, the notice said, all legal remedies available under the law would be availed by PTI.

The CMD head said that no one could accuse Imran Khan of corruption when he had dedicated his life to the fight against corruption.

“The relentless pursuit of the Panama Papers and kicking out more than a dozen MPA’s from the government risking his party’s government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa are the instances which show his commitment to a corruption free Pakistan,” Iftikhar Durrani pointed out.

Durrani said that Gharida Farooqi must withdraw her insulting allegations and tender unconditional apology immediately.
