FIA summons Shandana Gulzar for alleging state institutions

She is being accused of slandering state institutions and government officials. Gulzar is summoned by FIA on March 14th, 2024.

Federal Investigative Agency (FIA) summons PTI-SIC MNA Shandana Gulzar for leveling allegations on CM Punjab Maryam Nawaz.

She is being accused of slandering state institutions and government officials. Gulzar is summoned by FIA on March 14th, 2024. The FIA notice released on Saturday says that if she does not appear on the said date, it would be considered that she has nothing to say in her defense.

She is being implicated of CM Punjab Maryam Nawaz in an audio leak scandal. References were made to the deceased PTI activist Zille Shah in the alleged audio. The complaint against Shandana Gulzar has been forwarded by PMLN’s activist Shoaib Mirza.

Azma Bukhari, the Information Minister of Punjab, slammed Shandana Gulzar and warned her of the consequences. “Shandana Gulzar is insulting Pakistan. These are the actions of PTI’s political vultures,” she remarked while talking to the media.

“An application for registration of an FIR against Shandana Gulzar has been submitted. Now, neither a woman card nor a political card will be allowed to be used,” she explained.

She emphasized that the PTI has a history of engaging in politics exploiting tragedies and urged them to cease such actions, referring to them as “vultures.” Furthermore, she requested evidence to support Shandana’s accusations against Punjab Chief Minister Maryam Nawaz.

Last year, in a significant court decision, the Islamabad High Court has suspended the detention order of PTI’s Shandana Gulzar Khan on the grounds of insufficient evidence and lack of jurisdiction. The decision was reached after careful consideration of the arguments presented by both parties in the case.

The case revolved around the detention of Shandana Gulzar under Section 3 of the West Pakistan Maintenance of Public Order Ordinance, 1960 (MPO). The petitioner’s counsel contended that the detention was ordered without proper material or objective basis and was therefore in violation of Gulzar Khan’s right to liberty guaranteed by the Constitution.
