Former NAB chairman

The anti-harassment ombudsman in Islamabad has issued a pre-admission notice to former chairman of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal, and others in response to a harassment complaint filed by Tayyaba Gul.

According to Express News, during a hearing at the anti-harassment ombudsman on Saturday, pre-admission notices were issued to Iqbal and former DG NAB Shahzad Saleem.

Additionally, 12 individuals, including Iqbal, were summoned personally on January 16. The ombudsman also extended notice to NAB investigation officer Imran Dogar.

Gul, the complainant, alleged in her statement that Iqbal had demanded immoral acts in exchange for hearing her petition. She accused former NAB chairman of blackmailing and threatening her, stating that he insisted on not hearing her case unless she complied with his demands.

Furthermore, she claimed that Saleem falsely implicated her in a case at the request of Iqbal, leading to her arrest.

In her statement, Gul asserted that NAB investigation officer Dogar and others had arrested and harassed her. She alleged that they took her to Lahore and threatened to make videos viral if her husband did not remain silent.

Gul urged strict action against Iqbal, Saleem, Dogar, and others involved in the alleged harassment.

Further hearing of the case has been adjourned until January 16.
