Vastavam web: A woman, who claims to be the wife of former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s nephew, demanded that a parliamentary committee probe her case like that of Ayesha Gulalai, who has accused opposition leader Imran Khan of sexual harassment. Ayesha Ahad claims that Hamza Shahbaz, the son of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, “secretly” contracted marriage with her in 2010 but later unceremoniously abandoned her. Her demand to set up a parliamentary committee comes after Gulalai alleged that Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chairman and former cricket team captain Khan had sent her lewd messages and hinted at marrying her in those texts.
“A parliamentary committee should probe Hamza’s text messages to me about our marriage and also the torture the Punjab police inflicted on me to stop me from revealing our marriage,” Ahad told reporters in Lahore yesterday.”I am going to approach the Election Commission of Pakistan and present proof of my marriage to Member National Assembly Hamza Shahbaz. I hoped justice will be dispensed in my case too like that of Ayesha Gulalai,” she said.Talking about her alleged marriage, Ahad said: “We contracted marriage in 2010 in London. Later when I insisted to introduce me his wife in his family he refused.
Lending her support to Ahad, Imran Khan said: “First test for new PM (Shahid Khaqan Abbasi): Will he set up parliamentary committee to investigate serious allegations levelled by Ayesha Ahad against Shahbaz Sharif’s son Hamza Sharif? Or will he remain a ‘darbari’ of the Sharifs and ignore allegations by Ayesha Ahad including torture by Punjab police and deception by Hamza Sharif?”
