National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) on Monday filed a civil suit against the leader of the opposition in the National Assembly and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan for damaging the credibility of the organisation by leveling ‘false’ allegations of issuing fake CNICs in Rawalpindi.
NADRA, in its petition made PML-N leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, Punjab Chief Sectary, SHO Civil Line police station and others respondents.
In the petition, NADRA contended that the PML-N leader had badly damaged the reputation of the government organization by putting false allegations of issuing fake CNICs in NA 52 Rawalpindi. It also alleged that during March 2011, some unidentified people, on the directions of Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, picked up the NADRA officials by attacking on MRVs, alleging that the officials were issuing fake CNICs in the said locality.
