Police registers case against Hamza Shehbaz on his alleged wife’s complaint

LAHORE: A case has been registered against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Hamza Shehbaz, Zulfiqar Cheema, Inspector Ateeq Dogar, former Inspector General Rana Maqbool and Imran Yousuf on the complaint of Ayesha Ahad, said CCPO Amin Wains.

Earlier, Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar ordered Inspector General of Police Punjab to register a case against those allegedly involved in abusing Ahad — the woman who claims to be married to former Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif’s son Hamza Shehbaz.
In her plea, Ahad said that she and her daughter face danger from Hamza Shehbaz, following which the apex court summoned her to appear before it.
The police official said that sections: 382, 342, 506, 337, 148, 149, 511, 354 are included in the case, adding that Section 354 is a non-bailable offense.
Ahad’s complaint file in 2011 has also been made part of the FIR.
Earlier, Ahad had alleged that she contracted marriage with Hamza Shehbaz in 2010.
Ahad had demanded that a committee be formed to probe her allegations just as a parliamentary committee had been formed to investigate former PTI member Ayesha Gulalai’s allegations of harassment against Imran Khan.
The outgoing Punjab chief minister’s son had rebutted the claims, saying Ahad’s accusations are baseless and she had made the same accusations in 2014 in the court of law but was unable to present any evidence.
The SC while ordering IG Punjab to ensure safety of Ahad, adjourned the hearing of the case until June 29.
