PESHAWAR – Special anti-corruption court sent Sharbat Gula to 15 days imprisonment in prison with a fine of Rs110,000 on Friday.
The Nat Geo famed ‘Afghan Girl’ will also be deported to Afghanistan at the end of her sentence.
Gula had always insisted that she never deceptively obtained a Pakistani Computerised National Identity Card (CNIC).
The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) last month had arrested Sharbat Gula from Peshawar for forgery of a CNIC.
Police registered a case against three persons of the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) for allegedly issuing a CNIC to Gula on October 21 following which a search to find her was launched.
The NAT Geo famed ‘Afghan girl’ was named in the case as one of the thousands of Afghan refugees who managed to dodge Pakistan’s computerised system to get an identity card last year.
Sharbat Gula had applied for a Pakistani identity card in April 2014, using the name Sharbat Bibi.
