Court gives last chance to Ayesha Ahad in Rana Sanaullah defamation case


LAHORE: Giving last chance to the female complainant to appear before the court, a Session Court on Monday adjourned the hearing of the case seeking stopping Law Minister Punjab Rana Sanaullah from harassing the lady.

Additional Session Judge Shaikh Taseer-ur-Rahman directed her to appear before the court on the next hearing on December 16 after her lawyers assured the court that their client will appear in the court on next hearing.

The complainant Ahad’s lawyers had told the court that their client was unable to appear in the court today due to lawyers strike.

Ayesha in her petition in the court had asserted that she was being harassed by unidentified men at the behest of Rana Sanaullah as she complained of being chased by men in plain clothes whenever she went out.
She pleaded the court to implement earlier orders for the provision of security to her.

In August this year, Ayesha had served a defamation notice to Rana Sanaullah for making derogatory remarks against her and accused the law minister of making a false statement before the media on August 6, besides levelling scathing allegations against her.

The notice asked for Rs200 million as compensation amount for damages caused by the minister’s statement.
