Ayesha Gulalai says receiving murder threats for speaking up against harassment

Newly elected PM backs calls for parliamentary investigation into sexual-harassment accusations against Imran Khan. "The woman is unaware of the South and North Waziristan Agencies because she is not a resident of the tribal region", Wazir claimed, adding that tribal families would never allow their daughters to show up before the media.

Former PTI leader Ayesha Gulalai had alleged on Tuesday that she was leaving the PTI and claimed that women affiliated with the party faced constant harassment within the party ranks. On Friday, the PTI spokesperson rejected the demand for a bi-partisan parliamentary committee to probe Gulalai's allegations.

Khan, along with the PTI's top brass, batted down the allegations, accusing the ruling PMLN of using money to defame political rivals.

The SHO Hayatabad said they had received the application but it could not be entertained because it had no legal grounds. She reiterated that Imran had sent her the first inappropriate message in 2013.

The popularity graph of PTI in the KPK province, he said, was declining and Imran Khan should better focus on resolving the issues of the people instead levelling allegations against others.

Following this, the PTI served a legal notice to Gulalai demanding that she replies to the letter within 10 days or pay compensation to the tune of Rs. 30 million.

Imran Khan said he believed Ayesha had a lot of potential.

"I can not compromise my integrity and that's why I made a decision to take this step", she added.

The PTI chief was doing politics of allegations, he said while talking to a private news channel.
